On the 26th of January 1857, the Master of the Rolls 
submitted to the Treasury a proposal for the publication 
of materials for the History of this Country from the 
Invasion of the Romans to the Reign of Henry VIH. 

The Master of the Rolls suggested that these materials 
should be selected for publication under competent editors 
without reference to periodical or chronological arrange- 
ment, without mutilation or abridgment, preference being 
^ven, in the first instance, to such materials as were most 
scarce and valuable. 

He proposed that each chronicle or historical document 
to be edited should be treated in the same way as if the 
editor were engaged on an Edilio Princeps ; and for this 
purpose the most correct text should be formed from an 
accurate collation of the best MSS. 

To rencier the work more generally usefiil, the Master 
of the Rolls suggested that the editor should give an 
account of the MSS. employed by him, of their age and 
their peculiarities ; that he should add to the work a brief 
account of the life and times of the author, and any 
remarks necessary to explain the chronology ; but no other 
note or comment was to be allowed, except what might be 
necessary to establish the correctness of the text.

The works to be published in octavo, separately, as 
they were finished ; the whole responsibility of the task 
resting upon the editors, who were to be chosen by the 
Master of the Rolls with the sanction of the Treasury. 

The Lords of Her Majesty's Treasury, after a careful 
consideration of the subject, expressed their opinion in a 
Treasury Minute, dated February 9j 1857, that the plan 
recommended by the Master of the Rolls "was well 
calculated for the accomplishment of this important 
national object, in an effectual and satisfactory manner, 
within a reasonable time, and provided proper attention be 
paid to economy, in making the detailed arrangements, 
without unnecessary expense.** 

They expressed their approbation of the proposal that 
each chronicle and historical document should be edited 
in such a manner as to represent with all possible correct- 
ness the text of each writer, derived from a collation of the 
best MSS., and that no notes should be added, except 
such as were illustrative of the various readings. They 
suggested, however, that the preface to each work should 
contain, in addition to the particulars proposed by the 
Master of the Rolls, a biographical account of the author, 
so far as authentic materials existed for that purpose, and 
an estimate of his historical credibility and value.

According to this version, Eadburga, daughter of Ethelbert, 
King of Kent, succeeded Mildritha as Abbess of Minster or 
Thanet. Her exemplary conduct and death are described. 
The author is uncertain whether her relics were removed to 
St. Augustine's or to St. Gregory's. 

Great uncertainty prevails relative to the Anglo-Saxon 
Saints bearing the name of Eadburga. 

One is said by John of Tinmouth, but most erroneously, to 
have been daughter of Ethelbert, the first Christian King of 
Kent, by his Queen Bertha, and to have succeeded her niece

A.D. 761. Mildritha as Abbess of Thanet. The time of her death is 
uncertain, but it has been placed under the several years of 
664, 670, and 751. This uncertainty has led some persons 
to the belief that there were two Abbesses of Thanet named 
Eadburga; while others, more correctly no doubt, are of 
opinion that there was only one so called. In point of fact, 
it seems next to impossible that Eadburga,* daughter of King 
Ethelbert, should have been Abbess of Thanet, inasmuch as 
that abbey was founded by Domneva, granddaughter of Ead- 
bald, son and successor of Ethelbert ; to say nothing of the 
improbability of the daughter of Ethelbert the First of Kent 
succeeding her great grand«niece as Abbess in an abbey which 
was not in existence before the year 672, at the earliest. The 
mistake appears to have arisen from a confusion between the 
names of Ethelburga and Eadburga,f in consequence of John 
of Tinmouth calling Eadburga (who succeeded Mildritha 

* She seems to haye been also called Aethelberga. 

t Mabillon (Acta Sanct Old. Benedict., iii. L 424 § 10) thns writes on 
this subject, ** Non adsentior Eduardo Maiheuoio, dum in martjrologio 
" Anglo-Benedictino ad diem 13 Decembris distinguit Eadbnrgas duas

** epistolas direut.*' 

Mabillon tben proceeds to show that this Egburga, or Bugga, was 
the same person as Eadburga, the successor of Mildritha as Abbess of 
Thanet, and that she was the daughter of Abbess Eangytha, who addressed 
certain letters to St. Boniface, in which she mentions her only child 
Heaburg, sumamed Bugga. 

Eadburga, the correspondent of St. Boni&ce, was a highly accomplished 
woman, and wrote Latin with considerable facility. One of her pupils 
sends to St Bonif^e a specimen of her own acquirements in Latin meti^, 
and states that she learnt the art from Eadburga : " Istam artem ab Ead- 
" burgn magisterio didici." Eadburga also wrote books, and sent them to 
St Bouifiice for the instruction of his German converts ; and, on one 
occasion, sent him, at his request, a copy of the Gospels beautifully written 
in letters of gold.

bert of Kent, it would seem more probable that her father was 
Ethelbert 11., who died about 760. Another Saint Eadburga, 
daughter of Redwald, of East Anglia, was a nun at Aylesbury, 
where she died about the year 620. Her body was translated 
to a place which was called after her Edburgstown, now cor- 
ruptly Edburton. Another Eadburga was daughter of Edward 
the Elder, and died about the year 960. Her Life was written

A.D. 754, Several editions of this Life have been printed. Surius, 
" Vitffl Sanctorum," (5 Jun.) first published it, then Canisius 
(Antiquae Lectiones, iv.) in 1603 ; it was next published by 
Serarius in his edition of Boniface's Epistles, then by MabiUon 
(Acta Sanct. Bened. iii. ii. 1.), afterwards by Henschenius 
(Acta Sanct. i. 452, 5 June), as also by Pertz (Monumenta 
Germaniffi Ilistor., ii, 331 )• It is also reprinted by Giles in 
liis Edition of the works of St. Boniface, ii. 143. 

The Life of Boniface was written shortly after his death, at 
the instance of LuUus, Bishop of Mayence, and Megingoz, 
Bishop of Wurtzburg. The author sent it to them written on 
tablets of wax ; and after their examination and approval it 
was transcribed on parchment. 

Henschenius thinks that its author was not Willibald, 
Bishop of Eichstadt, but that it was written by one of the 
same name, who was a priest of Mayence and curate of 
St. Victor. MabiUon, however, assigns it to that individual ; 
though Basnage again doubts whether that Bishop was the 
author, because he calls himself " presbyter," and speaks of 
Willibald as " bonte industrisB virum." MabiUon, however, 
had anticipated these objections, and shown that they afford 
no sufficient ground for hesitation. 

The facts that occur in this Life, relating to England, are 
few, but the work is of value as exhibiting the energy and 
the prudence with which Boniface and his companions laboured 
for the conversion of Germany. They derive considerable 
importance, too, from the circumstance that they are based upon 
ihe evidence of those who were intimately acquainted with 

Boniface, or Winfrid, as he was first named,f was born 
near Exeter [Adestancastre] about the year 680, and passed 

" Vitam et Fassionem Bonifacii conscripsi, primum in ceratis tabnlis ad 
'^ probationem Lalli et Megengaudi, post eonun examen in pergamaneis 
" rescripsi, atque hoc in loco qui dicitor S. Victoris extra mures Moguntio?, 
" ubi LuUus et Rabanus vacabant orationibus, etc." 

♦",... quern admodum religiosis viris referentibus comperimus,

" ea quae audierunt vel viderunt, in exemplnm posteris tradiderunt." § 3 
VA, MabiUon. 

t Pope Gregory changed his name of Winfrid into Bonif^ice on the 
occasion of bis being ordained Bishop.

the first years of his life under Abbot Wolfard at Exeter ; he AJ). 754. 
was afterwards placed in a monastery at Nutescelle,* under 
Abbot Winbercht. During the reign of Ina he was sent to 
consult with Berchtwald, Archbishop of Canterbury, upon 
some important negociations, and he sailed for Friesland in 
71 o to convert the heathen ; being, however, unsuccessful, 
he returned to his monastery in England shortly afterwards. 
He obtained a general letter of recommendation from Daniel, 
Bishop of Winton, in 718, and went to Rome. Ho undertook 
a second journey to Homo in 723, when he was made a 
Bishop. His pallium, as Archbishop of Mayence, was given 
to him in 731. He was put to death 5th June 754. 

Willibald, the reputed author of this Life, is said to have 
been a kinsman of Boniface, and was the son of an individual 
named Kichardus, who, by one of the monkish writers, has 
been honoured with the title of " King of England," as appears 
by the epitaph, — 

'* Hie Rex Richardus requiescit sceptrifer almus. 

Rex fuit Anglorum, .... 

• «***« 

Hie genitor Sanctae Walburgje, virginis almse, 
Et Willibaldi sancti simul et Winibaldi." 

Willibald is supposed to have been bom about the year 700. 
He exhibited from his earliest youth a passion for travelling ; 
to gratify which his father sold his possessions in England and 
went with him, and his son Wunibald and his daughter 
Walpurga or Walpurgis, and settled in Rome. Willibald 
aflterwards made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land ; and visited 
Constantinople and aJl the cities of importance in Italy. 
He was admitted to priest's orders by Boniface in 739, who 
finally consecrated him at Saltzburg as Bishop of Eichstadt. 
He built a monastery at Eichstadt, and died about the year 

For a full account of Willibald, sec No. 1049. 

* This monastery was in the diocese ofWinchester, and was destroyed 
by the Danes. It was never rebuilt.

the end of the eleventh or commencement of the twelfth 
century. He divided his work, which was written at the 
request of his brother monks, into two Books. He does not 
seem to have well understood his original materials, and 
professedly omits all letters which do not relate to Germany. 
The portion of his work relating to Britain seems to be taken 
from Willibald.

the Life of St. Boniface, but as it is not apparent, from the

of these Lives, and to which of the individuals of that name 
they refer, it does not seem necessary to call attention specially 
to them.

These Epistles are 151* in number ; many are by Boniface, 
addressed to Kings, Bishops, Abbots, &c., in England, and 
others are from them to Boniface. They frequently contain 
notices, more or less important, relating to England, and inci-

Printed by Wharton in the " Anglia Sacra," ii. 184-190. 

The author states that he wrote this Life at the urgent 
request of his friends. 

Bregwin was bom of noble Saxon parents ; and made great 
progress in learning, ** for the schools founded by Archbishop 
" Theodore were yet flourishing" in England. He next 
becomes a monk. An account is given of Archbishop Cuth- 
bert ; whom Bregvnn succeeds (29 Sept. 769). The author 
apologizes for not inserting the miracles he performed during 
his lifetime ; but narrates various miracles after his death, 
with an account of the burning of the church of Canterbury, 
and of the attempt to carry off his body to Germany ; after 
which his remains are removed into a more secure place in 
the Cathedral church. Archbishop Bregwin died 24 Aug. 762. 

Eadmer's knowledge of Bregwin seems to have been very 
slight ; he has, however, incidentally given several curious 

This work must have been written after 1122, as the death 
of Archbishop Radulf is mentioned (p. 188). Wharton has 
omitted a few of the miraculous incidents.

letters among the Anglo-Saxon females* was not so limited 
as it has been generally thought. Her history is connected 
with that of the English mission in Grermany, and is too 
important to be passed unnoticed. 

The Life of Leobgitha is founded on pre-existing authorities. 
It was finished before the translation of her remains in 837 ; 
for not only does the author omit to mention this circumstance, 
but he says that her body remained where it had originally 
been deposited. Rabanus, by whose order the Life was written, 
was not then Archbishop, which proves that it was composed 
at least before 847. 

Rudolf is an able writer for the time ; his narrative is based 
upon the memoirs of four disciples of the Saint, and on what 
a monk of Fulga, named Mago, told lum, who had learned 
from herself an account of many of her actions. His Prologue 
is explicit upon these sources of his information.

Of the personal history of Walpurga or Walburga,|| Abbess 
of Heidenheim, very little is known that is authentic ; at least, 
there is a great confusion in her biography, owing, perhaps, 
to her having been confounded with others of the same name. 
She was the daughter of St. Richardus, and sister of Willi- 
bald and Wunibald. She was born in the kingdom of the West 
Saxons, and educated in the monastery of Wimbum, in Dorset- 
shire, where she took the veil. After passing twenty years in 
that house, she was sent by the Abbess Tetta, with sevornl 
othei*8, into Germany, at the request of her relative St. 
Boniface. She eventually became abbess of a nunnery founded 
by her two brothers at Heidenheim, in Suabia, where she 
died in 779 or 780.

A.B, 780, Six Lives of this Saint have been written at various times, 
but this by Wolfhard, a priest of Eichstadt or Aichstadt, in 
Bavaria, is the most important. He lived about a century 
after her death, and dedicated his work to Erchenbald, who 
occupied the see of Eichstadt from 886 to 902. Viewed 
as a biography, however, it is very imperfect Indeed, the 
author only professes to relate the miracles performed at the 
intercession of the Saint ; though in his First Book he gives 
a brief history of her Life. The remaining three Books, and 
a portion of the First, he devotes to her miracles, to many 
of which he states that he himself was a witness. This work 
is deficient in ordinary power of discernment, bearing evident 
marks of a predominant passion for the marvellous.

TluB work was first printed by Canisius (ii. ii. 99), after- A.D. 78G. 
wards bj Surius, and again by Mabillon (Act. Sanct. Ord. 
Bened.), iv. 332. A later text is given in the " Acta Sanctorum," 
ii. 485 (7 Jul.), together with a copious history of his Life. 

In the third year of his age Willibald's life was despaired of, 
whereupon his parents consecrated him at the foot of the cross, 
which was erected near their dwelling, to the service of God. 
At five years of age he was placed in the monastery at Waltham, 
under Abbot Egbald, where he remained until he was about 
seventeen, when he determined to accompany his father 
and brother, Wunibald, in their visit to the Holy Places. 
Their father died at Lucca, and the two brothers proceeded to 
Rome. Wunibald being now compelled to return to England, 
Willibald set out with two companions for the Holy Land. After 
seven years passed in this pilgrimage, during which they 
suffered most severe privations, they returned to Italy, and 
Fettled, with the permission of the Pope, at the monastery of 
Monte Cassino. St. Boniface, having come to Rome, obtained 
the Pope's permission for Willibald to accompany him in his 
mission into Germany. Boniface ordained him pnest, and a 
short time afterwards conseci-ated him Bishop of Eichstadt. 
Having held the See for upwards of forty years, he died on 
the 7th July 786, aged eighty-seven. Tlie Life of St. Boni- 
face, the Apostle of the Germans, his relative, is said to 
have been written by Willibald. See No. 1028. 

The notices connected with England are but few. The 
writer, a nun of Heidenheim, says that she had received her 
information from Willibald himself ; bu£ it does not appear 
whether she wrote during his lifetime, nor is it known 
who she was, except that she was related to him. Her work 
has been the basis of other biographies of Willibald, but 
nothing of importance has been added to her labours. She 
also wrote a Life of Wunibald, the brother of Willibald.

AD. 786. This Life, which is little more than an abridgment of the 
preceding piece, with some few additions of no value, is said 
to have been versified by Reginaldus, the eleventh Bishop of 
Eichstadt, who died in the year 989. 

It is printed by Mabillon (Act. Sanct. Ord. Bened. iv. 347) 
from the text of Canisius. 

Adalbert, abbot of Heidenheim, who lived in the twelfth 
century, wrote a brief account of the Lives of Willibald, 
Wunebald, and Walpurga ; and Philip, Bishop of Eichstadt 
(1306-1322), also wrote a Life of .Willibald.

A very imperfect edition of this work was published by 
Surius, under 8 Nov. ; it being next given, and more satisfac- 
torily, in 1642, by Ph. Caesarius in his " Triapostolatus Sep- 
tentrionis," and again by Mabillon in his " Acta Sanct. Ord. 
Bened.," iv. 364. This last edition exhibits the text of 
Cflesarios, collated with a MS. which had belonged to the 
monasteiy of Old Corby. It is also given in Langebek, 
^^ Script Rerum Danicarum," i. 342. In Pertz (Monument. 
Grerman. Hist. ii. pp. 378-390) will be found the best edition 
of this Life. 

Willehad, by birth a Northumbrian, was probably educated 
at York, and was one of those who carried on the work so suc- 
cessfiilly begun by Boniface in Germany. He died Bishop of 
Bremen in A.D. 789. His Life was written by Anscharius, 
who was bom about A.D. 801, and died about 869. 

The work is divided into two Books, the First containing 
the Life of Willehad : the Second is confined to his Miracles, 
and was not finished until some years after the First. The 
Miracles begin thus, "Dono Omnipotentis Dei," and end, 
" Agitur autem dies Depositionis ejus simul et Translatio cor- 
*' poris 6 Idus Novembris, ad laudem et gloriam norainis 
'^^ Domini nostri Jesu Christi, qui cum Patre et Spiritu Suncto, 
" unus et verus Deus, vivit et dominatur per immortalia 
•* saecula saeculorum. Amen.** The author has prefixed his 
name to the Prologue to the Second Book.* He regrets, from 
the inadequacy of his memory and the imperfect nature of his 
materials, his inability to do justice to his subject : it might, 
however, be supposed that, as he was only the third in succes- 
sion from Willehad, he must have had abundant opportunities 
for obtaining correct information relative to his predecessor.

King Milfrid, hearing of his miracles, founds a noble church

This account is evidently derived from the same source

in the other. It may be questioned whether there be anything 
really credible in the narrative, except the fact of Ethelbert's

been supplied with a copy from the Cotton MS. Vitell. E. vii. 
(since destroyed by the fire of 1731) by the assistance of 
Dugdale. They remark upon the great conformity between 
tlie narrative of Giraldus and that of Brompton, the latter of 
which appears to have been derived from the former, or 
possibly both may have originated in a common source.

inserted in the "Acta Sanctorum," ii. 23 (19 Jan.), and after-

it from the editions above mentioned. The whole consists of 
about 176 hexameters. 

Blaitmaic was a native of Ireland, and of royal blood. He 
became a monk, and was afterwards Abbot of lona. He 
was martyred by the Danes, who ravaged the north of Eng- 
land and the Scottish coast in A.D. 793. 

This piece was written by Walafrid Strabo, about the

A.D. 796. This poem, ascribed, but erroneously, to Fridegode,* is in 
reality a production of the pen of Alcuin, himself a native of 
York, and a pupil of the celebrated school established in that 
city. As far as line 1210 it is little more than a versification 
of Beda's History, but it is continued fVora that period (A.D. 
735) to the death of Archbishop Eanbald.

Printed by Wats at the end of his edition of Matthew Paris. 

The elder Offa was the son of Warmund, King of the 
Western Angles, who built the city of Warwick. 

His pretended history seems to be pure fable, based on the 
same materials that were used by Saxo Gramraaiicus, pp. 59, 
63, 64, 6o^ in his account of Warmund and Offa ; but Saxo 
dechu^s that the acts of Offa after Warmund*s death were 

In the Saxon genealogies of the Mercian kings, Warmund, 
the father of the elder Offa, was the fourth from Woden, and 
Grida, the seventh in descent from Warmund, was the first 
who reigned as King in Mercia. 

The Life of the second or real Offa is to a great extent as 
fabulous as that of the first Offa. The writer has taken as 
his groundwork the few notices relating to Offa which occur 
in Henry of Huntingdon, and William of Malmesbury, and 
these he has enlarged or added to at his pleasure. Indeed, 
there is not a single incident worthy of credit in the whole 
of this biography that is not derived from these sources. 

Wats is of opinion that, though these two Lives may not 
have been wholly written by Matthew Paiis, yet that the 
style had been polished by him. That they were not both 
written by him seems pretty clear, as Wendover had, previous 
to his time, made use of the Life of the historic Offa (see 
Coxe's Roger of Wendover, vol. i., p. 251). We have the 
alternative, therefore, of supposing that the Life of the mythic 
Offa was written by Matthew Paris after his return from 
Norway, whither he had been sent by Pope Innocent IV., in 
the year 1248,* on a special mission, having possibly been 
suggested to him during his stay in Scandinavia ; or that the 
tradition, carried with them into England by the Angles, had 
been taken up and adopted by Matthew Paris.

The " Liber de Mensura Orbis Terrae " contains a general

founded upon an older work said to have been imdertaken by 
the authority of the Emperor Theodosius.* With this the 
author has interwoven extracts from early writers, such as 
Pliny, Solinus, Orosius, Isidorus, and Priscian, and such new 
information as he had collected in the course of his own 
enquiries. His account of the Northern islands is to us the

most interesting part of his book. It establishes two important A.D. 800. 
points of history ; (1) that the Irish had made a settlement in 
Iceland in the 8th century, long before its discovery by the 
Northmen ; and, (2) that the Fcrroe islands had been inha- 
bited by Irish monks nearly 100 years before they were driven 
away by the incursions of the Northern pirates at the be- 
ginning of the 8th century. 

Dicuil * was born in Ireland f about the latter end of the 
8th century, and composed his work about the year 825 ; 
after visiting the British isles ho entered an Irish monastery 
in France, for the purpose of obtaining instruction from his 
countryman, Suibneus, who taught there. 

While Dicuil was attending the school of Suibneus, the latter 
received a visit from a monk named Fidelis, who had gone to 
the Holy Land in company with a number of pilgrims from 
England, and of whose information Dicuil availed himself. 

The scanty information at which we can arrive respecting 
Dicuil has been carefully examined by M. Letronne, in his

* The name Dicuil, Dicul, or Dicholl, was common in Ireland during 
the seventh, eighth, and ninth centuries. One, a disciple of St. Fursey, 
flourished hetween 640 and 650. There was a hermit of that name who 
died in 700. Another was abhot of Cluain, in Ireland, and died in 747. 
A fourth was abbot of Innis de Muredaich, in Connaught, who died in 871, 
and another died in 889, abbot of Kilmore. 

f This feet is evident from his own statement, ** circum nostnun Hi- 
*' bemiam " (c. vii. § 2, i.). Again, he writes, " ex nostra Scottia," (ibid. § 3), 
where Scottia is used for Ireland. The same meaning occurs in tl^ writings 
of Beda, Alcuin, and others about that period.

In the Prologue the author states that« at the command of 
his ecclesiastical superior, he purposes relating the Life of 
Alcuin, as he had heard it from his master Sigulf, who had 
been one of Alcuin's disciples. 

Alcuin was born of noble parents in England,* and was 
placed in a monastery in his earliest infancy, where, until he 
was eleven years of age, he preferred Virgil to Psalmody ; but, 
upon being warned by a vision of demons punishing a rustic 
for selecting to attend the nocturnal service of the church, 
he changed his pursuits and became wholly devoted to reli- 
gious offices. He was then placed under Archbishop Ecgbert, 
the pupil of Beda, to complete his education, and afterwards 
under Elbert, whose favour he obtained by his virtue and 
application. Elbert was succeeded by Eanbald, who ordered 
Alcuin to proceed to Rome for his pall.f On his journey he 
met with Charles the Great, at Parma, who prevailed on him 
to promise to visit France when he had completed his mission. 
This he did (about 782), and became tutor to the Emperor, 
who bestowed two monasteries upon him. When the heresy of 
Felix, Bishop of Urgel, had made considerable progress, ho 
was employed to refute it at the Council held at Aix-la- 
Chapelle. Alcuin was desirous of retiring to Fulda, but the 
Emperor insisted on his remaining at Tours, where he had 
many celebrated pupils, and among them several of his own 
countrymen. He is alleged to have given proofs of his fore- 
knowledge of events, and, among the rest, to have declared 
that Louis Le Debonnaire would succeed his father. Remem- 
bering his own former neglect of religious dudes, he forbade 
his pupils to read Virgil. He is said to have performed 
various miracles ; and, at the request either of the Emperor 
or of persons of distinction, he composed several works. 
Above all things ho eschewed idleness, and was always occu-

religious duties. He died in the year 804, and was buried in 
the church of St. Martin, at Tours. 

The name of the writer of this important piece of biography 
is unknown. He commenced his work before the accession 
of Abbot Aldricus to the See of Sens, an event which took 
place in the year 829 (Gallia Christiana, xii. 20). Althougli 
the notices in it respecting England are neither numerous nor 
extensive, yet the important position which Alcuin occupies 
in the history of European civilization invests with con- 
siderable interest any notice of this eminent individual.*

The chief Epistles which relate to Britain are 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, A.D. 804.

The letters of Alcuin are of the highest value as illustrating 
the intellectual, social, moral, and religious condition of Europe 
at the period at which they were written. With less direct 
hearing upon the history of his native country than could 
have been wished, they yet possess sufficient connexion with 
English affairs to have an especial claim upon our attention. 
Several are to be found in the '^Lectiones Antiqum" of Canisius. 
Andrew Du Chesne published an edition in 1617, but the best 
edition is that of Frobenius (fol. Hatisb. 1777). A critical 
edition, based upon the MSS. which exist, and for the most 
part nncoUated, in our libraries, is still a desideratum. The 
Surtees Society has more than once announced such a work 
among its intended publications, but none has yet appeared. 

Of the poems of Alcuin, the most important are those upon 
the history of the Bishops of York (No. 1058), and the Life 
of Willibrord (No. 1011), already mentioned. They are col- 
lected in Frobenius' edition, ii. 203.

Edited, with a eontinuation to the year 1 191, by Archdeacon 
Hardwick among " The Chronicles and Memorials " of Great 
Britain and Ireland, published under the direction of the 
Master of the Rolls. " The aim of the author," writes the 
learned Editor, '^ is more ambitious than that of Thorne, who 
** preceded him, and in the part which has come down to us, 
'* the work has been constructed on a scale of grandeur, or 
'^ more properly of difTuseness, which has few examples in the 
** literary products of that age of compilations.*' We gather 
from the introductory Table, which may justly be regarded as 
a kind of index to the whole work, that the author had in- 
tended to distribute his materials under "Tituli," corresponding 
to the list of Abbots who ruled in St. Augustine's. The whole 
number thus obtained is sixty- two, including one " Titulus " 
of introductory matter " de Fundatione." But so vast was the 
conception of the author, and so fatid the facility with which 
he passed from St. Augustine's to the general history of the 
Anglo Saxon Church, that fourteen only of these " Tituli," 
embracing an account of little more than two hundred years, 
appear to have been absolutely finished. The work is superior 
to the Chronica of William Thorne, in giving us a large col- 
lection of the older archives, and narrating the chief events of 
all that early period in our history, where Thorne is well-nigh 
silent ; while it is inferior to his Chronicle in the want of some 
historical commentary to illustrate the import of Rolls and 
Charters brou;»ht together in the last division. In other

f The narrative breaks off abruptly at this point, in the middle of the 
15th Titulus, but it is resumed aft^ two blank leaves with Titulus 43, and 
carried on with what Archdeacon Hardwick justly calls ** preparations or 
'* rough materiah)** for the continuation of the history, such as charters, 
bulls, and other muniments relating to S. Augustine's, and ranging, all of 
them, between the Norman Conquest and the early years of the reign of

Mr, ii^rdwick has given salLsfactory reasons for assigning 
the aathordhip of this History to Thomas of Elmham. It had,

MS. is described ; hut he gives no reason for such ascription.

figrrihed it to Thomas of Elmhara.

verbal variations, it agrees with the St. John's MS. till near the conclusion, 
when it begins a new series of miracles, which had taken place after the de- 
struction of the church of Winchelcomb by fire in 1149 ; but it ends shortly 
after, being imperfect at the bottom of tiie page. It is preceded by the 
genealogy of the Mercian kings, as in Florence of Worcester.

(in common with MS. Bodley) from (}oscelin, but retains much of his 
verbiage. Afterwards, to the arrival of the messages from Rome, where 
it ends, it agrees almost exactly with MS. Bodley, but transposes the last 
sentence, which in MS. Bodley forms part of the account of Eenelm's 
murder. The concluding part of this MS. is in a different hand fh>m 
the other portion, though perhaps equaUy ancient, or nearly so.

This poem is addressed to Ecgbert (A.D. 802-819), Bishop 
of Lindisfarne, by Ethel wulf, n monk of that place. Its con- 
tents are to the following effect : — 

Osred, King of Northumbria, among various other misdeeds 
and crimes, compels many persons to receive the tonsure. A 
nobleman, named Eandmund, who is one of the number, 
obtains instruction in monastic duties from Egfrid, Bishop of 
Lindisfarne (who presided over the See from 698 to 721), 
and afterwards applies to Ecgbert in Scotland (? Ireland) 
for regulations for a monastery ; by whose direction he builds 
a church to St. Peter, and covers it with lead. He dies, and 
is buried in the church. 

The most remarkable circumstances, next to Osred's tyranny, 
are the accounts of Ultan the scribe, Cuicuyn the smith, the 
church of St. Mary, built by Sigbald, and the ornaments of 
the church. 

Mabillon confesses that he is unable to determine where 
the monastery here mentioned was situated, for although the 
author declares himself a monk of Lindisfarne, the monastery 
is evidently different ft*om that foun(^ed at Lindisfarne by 

* This and the eleven lines following it precede the Rabric in the MS. 

t The probability is that it was a cell or dependent monastery to Lin- 
disfkme, and that it was destroyed by the Danes in their invasion of 
Northumbria, concerning whose devastations see Alcnini Epist viii. 
(0pp. i. 11. Ed. Frohen. 1777.^ •

The incidents which have reached us respecting the Life 
of Angus, or .tineas, are few and unimportant. He was 
descended from the ancient princes of Dalriadia, in Ulster,

where he acquired a high reputation for holiness and learning. 
He compiled the '* Martyrologium Aengusii, filii Hoblenii, et

Explicit vita Sancti Swithuni Episcopi. 

This Life is attributed to Goscelin, and if it really was com- 
posed by him it must have been written nearly 250 years after 
the death of St. Swithun, and is, therefore, of little authority. 
It contains but few incidents, and is occupied rather with his 
Miracles than his life. 

It was altered and printed by Surius, and reprinted, with 
collations from Capgrave's text, in the *^ Acta Sanctorum " 
(2 Jul.), i. 327, with an addition at the end. The text of the 
Arundel MS. is far superior to that which has been printed. 

Swithun appears to have been bom about the year 800 : 
from being a monk he became prior of Winchester, and was 
afterwards Bishop of that diocese. His death is referred by 
some authorities to 861, and by others to 862, but it probably 
occurred 2 July 863. 

Since the above notice was written Mr. Earle has printed 
this Life among his illustrative pieces ^^ On St. Swithun,"

. Edmund, sou of King Alcmund, nacended the throne of East 
Anglta A.D. 8o5, being then fourteen years old* Upon the 
Dtttikh iuTasion of his kingdom, he fell into the hands q£ the 
Pa^ajaus, who rcquh'ed him to renounce the Christian faith. Ho 
rejected their proposal, and was consequently put to dcatli by 
them* Hence bi^ title of ^ Martyr/ 

The author of this piece was Abbo of Floury, who was 
lOTited into England by Oswald, successively Bishop of Wor- 
cester aud Arch hi shop of TorL At the request of St» Duns tan, 
Abbo wrote the Life, now under consideration, about the year 
985,* His narrative is highly valuable. In order that ho 
might not report anything in his narrative that was not strictly 
trae^ he took the precaution of sending his MS. to St. Duns tan, 
praying him to correct everything that was contrary to histori- 
csl truth. Ho received his account of the death of Edmund from 
Si* DuuBtan himself, who had had it from the Martyr's sword- 
bearer. Abbo, during his residence in England, established a 
school at Ramsey, where he resided and taught. Upon leaving 
this country he became Abhot of La R<Solc, in Gascony, where 
he was killed in a skirmish on the 13th of November, 1004,

to the Monks of Ramsej. His life is published hj Mabillon 
(Act. Sanct. Ord. Bened.), viii. 35. 

The Miracles attributed to Hermannus immediately follow 
Abbo's work in MS. Cott. Tiber. B. ii. ; but they certainly 
do not come from that writer's pen.

A.D. 870. The Life, which extends to about 3286 verses, ends, — 
" La teste unt pur ceo desevree 
Loinz del cors, que nel trouassent 
Cristiens, ne al cors la justassent, 
£ que en honeste sepulture 
Ne meissent, par aventure. 
Le chief e le cors ensement, 
Del martir Dieu Omnipotent." 
After the Life follow Miracles, beginning at f. 16 : — 
" Un homme del Cristiene lay 
Est eschape del grant desray, 
De la grant occisiun, 
En le bois de Hailesdun." 
This part is imperfect ; it contains 714 verses, and ends with 
the lines, — 

" Ja Sueyn ne ireit de cest pais, 
Quil ne fust descumfit e pris.'* 
The catch words are, — 

" E ses amis li respundi." 
This work of Denis Piramus, and the Life by Abbo, have 
much in common with Lydgate and Galfridus de Fontibus, 
but where they agree Denis seems much fuller. 

The Life of St. Edmund, printed in Battely (" Antiquitates 
" Edmundi Burgi,") which was compiled by order of Abbot 
Curteis, resembles Denis Piramus, Matthew of Westminster, 
Gaimar, and Simeon of Durham. 

Denis Piramus lived in the reign of Henry the Third of 
England, and passed the greater portion of his life at the Ck)urt 
of that monarch. He says that he composed the Life of Sl 
Edmund to amuse the King and his nobles during a sea voyi^e.

In the outline of its comijosition it differs from all the other 
l*ivii*S5 but it ligrces with tliem in iligrcs^in^^ from the prineipal 
iubject to the military disiisters of AUVed^ a ad to Lis victory

ppdng in which he woij bathing, and the loss of his slioe^ 
vliieh was found by a fox. 

As a guide for aacertnining the period in which the author 
of tbis piece composed this work, it may be observed that 
when be wrote there was a murrain and distre^^s of c^yery 
BncL Now the first great murrain after the death of Alfrml 
look place in the year y86,f and not improbably tlie agitatinf^ 
€ifCi£iii5tances mentioned by the antlior in St, Neot's Life, 
ffn^led with the supposed approach of the end of the world, J 
laay satisfactorily correspond witii that date. Again llio 
misery of the times and the murrain of 10%5 might bo ecni*

dale aei^ms preferable* It contains the same Jiuaehroidsm 
ItiAt 13 common to the other Lives, that St. Neot, who died 
ii])Out 877, was ordained by Aelllieah, Bishop of Winchester, 
wlio died in 951. 

Neot was born in the early part of the ninth eentury. In his 
jotitb he was desirous of adopting a military life, but abandnn- 
Ing that idea he renounced tlm worldj and entered as a monk 
In the Abbey of Glastonbury. There he became ccdebrnted

at ttie popular applauso he received^ he retired to a secluded

After passing seven years in se elusion, he paid seven visits to 
Rt^mcf The Pope dissuadtjd him from adopting a solitary 
life, and advised him to return into Cornwall, there to i^pread 
the word of God among the people. The result of thU

not stated by any ancient authority, and can only be col lee ted

that it occurred on the 3 1st July 877, { See Mabillun Act,

Seeing that, through carelcssnes^J! and the faintness< of tradi- 
ti» a full knowledge of St. ^cot ii* not to be obtained, the 
iter intends collecting some few notices of him and of bis 
inijeles. Before the Norman power had reduced England 
one king<3om, it was formerly governed b^ four kings, 
ae of these was Edulfus,* who mlcil Wessex and Kent, and 
together with liis wife, of royal race, was extremely pious 
[ liberal lo the church. They had a son who was baptized 
bjT the name of Neot, and who, very early, was trained to lite- 
rwy pursuits ; so much bo that when ho attained the age for 
military oxercleoa, he refused to engage in secnlar concerns and 
became a monk at Glastonbury, during the time that Duns tan 
w»a Abbot there. Hero he selected -^thelwoldj afterwards 
Btihop of Winchester, for hi a intimate friend, and strongly 
Impresged him with the advantages of a holy life. Upon 
tieing ordained deacon and pneat, so abort was his stature

the ecdesiastieal habit at hi.^ handji ; and his horn, trans- 
initl:ed to St* Petroe'j* church, where it still is preserved as 
a relic of Suint Keot, attests the circumstance. King Alfn^t

relics, a portion of the Holy Cross. St Neot dies and la 
received into Heaven hy angels with songs of joy ; hia body 
being buried in the church which he himself hae bullt^ nnd 
many miracles performed at his tomb. After a time, the 
church proving too small, it was enlarged and his bedy re-

In the year 877, on the 8th of the Ides of January, 
Guibrum, with a great force invades England and marches 
against the West em- Angles, wIkto he has learned that 
Alfred is passing tho winter. Alfred flies to Ethliugca, and 
takcji refuge in the cottage of a swineherd, where ho is 
rated by the wife of his host for letting ihe cakes burn for 
want of turning. St. Neot appears to him in his distneas* 
and assures bim that at the end of se\'en weeks after Easter 
he ehall prevail over his enemies. Alfred marches to 
Elbrichtstan, St. Neot again appears to him, before the 
action^ and on the advance is seen leading the English forces

superiors, ho intends relating what has been authentteally 
delivered coticerning St, Neot. 

His parents ruled, it is said, in tbo eastern parts of Britain. 
Tht'y made bim devote himself in his early yeaxs to learning ; 
in which bo made great progresa^ avoiding eveiytbing childJi^h 
and worldly. A commendation of Glastonbury follows- Neot

the sevTral monkB, liis exemplary conduct; his conversations

Except the account of the Translation, this narrative has n 

stron^^ general resemblance to the Sa3Eon Lifu in the Cot Ionian 
MS* Vespas, D. xiv* There is a confasion j?oiiie where between 
the two accounts of St. Keot's Journey to Rome, eeveii ycarii 
after he had resided at Neote stoke and of his going to Komo 
seven times, as in the Saxon Life. This Life also omits thii 
legendary tales respecting Neot's resitleuce in Cornwall* 

On the miracles, as miracles, contained in these Lives it 
wore irrelevant to remark ; but as, histoncaliyj these appear to 
cast a censure on Alfred^s conduct, it may bo worth while 
to make sonie ob^jervatiens on their credibility. 

No. 1118 fiaya, Firat, That St, Neot went to Glastonbury In 
Holy Bishop ^lleg*s days*, and was ordained by him ; now, the 
only " Holy Bishop " of this name who is mentioned in early 
times as connected with that monastery is ^Tiilfug the Martyr,* 
who had been prior of Glastonbury, and w»8 murdered by tbt? 
Danes A,D, 1D12 ; whereas by the testimony of all ihe 
Lives, St. Neot must have died before 878, when he i« said 
to have appeared to Alfred at Ethel ingai. Secondly, St. Xcot^ 
aomo time before his deatli, advised Alfred **to send liiit 
** offerings to Pope Martiuus" (Marinus), but that pontiff 
did not fill the chair of St. Peter until A.D. 882, at least four 
years after St. Neot*s deatli. 

In No. 1119 First, We are told that Neot became a monk 
of Glastonbury during the Abbacy of Hu Dunstan, and that 
Adelwold, afterward:^ Bishop of Winchester, was his imimalc

Ass^r's Life of Alfred tho Great may be arranged under twa 
heads : — ^I, The general history of the period betweeu AJX 
849, being llio year of AUVed^s birtfi, and A.D- 887 ; IL Tkat 
whicli relates personally to tLat monarcli and hia faEnily^ imlll 
A.D. 893, which was the 45th year of his ago. 

The first portion, with the f^xeeption of a few explanatory 
remarks, is a translation of the Saxon Chronicle. The sceond 
secjns to be chiefly the result of the Aut Ivor's personal observa* 
lion, and is the source of all that is to bo authentically known 
of the private life of that eminent prince. What induetHl 
Asser to break off hi;* narrative at that [wintcular point, and 
that so abruptly, cannot now be determined. 

The copy of the Saxon Clironicle used by Asser appcura to 
liave ended about the year 887x Although he mentions 
Alfred's 4otli year, A.D. 893, yet he tiikes no notice of tlio 
transactions of that yenr^ when the Danes returned from Fvaaeo, 
nor of the six preceding years. 

The resemblance between the Saxon Chronicle and Asscr 
was noticed by Bishop Gibson, but he has not determined 
which liad the priority ; though, if he had reflected, he might 
with little short of certainty ha%'e decided against Asser's elalm 
to be the earlier writer. Sucli a supposition^ in fact, would 
involve the absurdity of admitting that it was men:4y from the 
casual circumstaute of Anser'a visit to Alfred about A.D, 884 
that the Anglo-Saxons were induced to compose their annals, 
and to embody in them the work of a strauger. That Asser 
borrowed from the Saxon Cljronich^ does not seem to admit 
of a doubt, for the Cbi'onide comes regularly down to A,D, 
849, at which tunc Asser takes it iip, and uses it to A.D. tlH7 ; 
aud, when he stops, the Chronicle continues its course without 
intiirruption. It deserves, however, to be remarked, that 
Asser's chronology slightly df tiers in several instances from 
that of the Saxon Chronicle as it now exists, 

Asscr, tlie biographer of Alfred the Gn-af, was apparently a 
native of South Walc.^, and, according to his own statement, 
was invited by that momirch to assist him in his studies about 
A.D, 88o. He does not, liowcver, distinctly inform his readers 
what office or dignity he Ailed before his appearance at King

bable that lie bad presidcti over the monasterj if not over the -893. 
See of SL David's. He myB he was cd(icfttc?d, tonsured, and 
Stigiiy ordamed there. Hg mentions that injuries had been 
frequently perpetrated on that see and monastery bj King 
Hmiiejd, and speaks of the expuUion of the prelates, aJid par* 
ttciilarly of his kinsmau, archbishop Novi;?^ and also of hini- 
ifclf fvitli them. He says thi\t liis dui*endent3 expected to attaijx 
III a greater degree of security if b© should acquire the friend - 
•Up of Alfred ; that be had po.^seasions or junsdiction to thi^ 
WIBt and to the north of the Severn ; that bo eonld not remain 
in Wessex, as Alfred had desired, without tho advice of bis 
def]gjp wbo, for the benefit of Bt» David's, advised or permitted 
Mm to enter into an engagement with the King to that e^eet* 
In addition to these brief notices obtained from Iiis ovm work, 
it may be stated that Giralduf* Cftinhrensis * places Asser 
second after Novis in hh list of the Bmhops of St* David's ; 
nnd though the series of prelates of lliat see is there strangely 
distorted, still it shews that, before Gi raid us wrote, Absct had 
Wen included among the Btsbops of St. David's ; and, lastly, in 
the "Annalea Cambrite^' where the names of the Welsh Bi:shop.^ 
only occur, nnd even of those veiy few, the death of Bishop 
Arfeserini recorded. The -' Annalcs Ecclesia; Menevensfsis/' written 
by a canon of St, David's, also place him among the Bishops of 
thai ^e. That he ultimately, however, became Bit^hop of Shir* 
burn admits of no doubt ; he does not, indeed, mention that 
see, for he relates only that Alfred gave him successively 
Amesbury and Ban well, and at a later period Exeter, with its 
difitriet in Devonshire and Cornwall ; and possibly at the time 
that he wrote the Life of Alfred he might not have obtained 
that bishopric, but his name occurs in all the ancient catalogues 
of its prelates.! Bishop Asser witnesses Charters of Edward 
tbc Elder in A,D. 901, A.D. 903, and A,D. 904 ;% and in an- 
oihkT Charter of the same King, without date, he is called 
Bialiop of Shirburn, and receives certain lands for the benefit 
of 1 1 im self and of the church of Shirburn, in exchanfre for

A.D. 840 Chronicle he ia exprossly called ** Bishop of Sliirburn*" lltrcn 
liowever, a difficulty must bo ob?iated i Florence of Worcester 
makes Swlthelm fiucceed lo the me of Shirburn on the death t»f 
Aeser io A,D. 833 (for which a^^ertion thcro is no authority in 
the Saxon Chronicle); and if this asiertion were well founded^ it 
would be necessary to admit either that the previoue statement 
is erroneous, or that within a very sshort interval the 8ee ha^l 
been filled by two person 3 of the same name; which would lie 
contradicted by all other lists of the prelates of that see, as well 
as by that appended to hi;^ Chronicle by Florence him.self, in 
which the immediate sncceesor of Asser is called Ethel ward, 
between whom and Sigbelm two other bishops intervene-* In 
addition to this^ Florence^ neither in thia list nor in hij$ Clironielo 
repeats the name of Asser ; nor does the list reeogoi^e Uie 
name of Bishop Swithelm, mentioned in the Chronicle, It U 
probable, therefore, that Florence was mis^taken, as Sighelm. 
the only name in the least resembling Swithelm in the eat^oguiv 
occnra several degree si lower than Asser. From what has been 
already stated, it is probable that Asserts connexion after the 
decease of Alfred was continued with King Edward, his guc* 
cessorj until his own death, which, according t^ the **AnDalc€ 
Cambriie/* took place in A*D- 908, or, according to the Saxcm 
Chronicle, in the ymr 910, It has been remarked by an acute 
writer, " that his language throughout in that of one writing

Asser's Life of Alfred was first published by Archbishop 
Parken in AD. 1574, at London, in folio. That eminent 
prelate caused it to be printed in Saxon characters, out of reTJS* 
rence, as ho observes, for the archetype, or very aiicient maug* 
script ; from which ho seems to say (for there is some ambiguity 
in Lis statement) that his edition was taken without addition 
or diminution j and he further asserts that he had depositivd 
in the Library of Cor|*U9 Chrieti CollcgOj Cambridge, the 
manuscript which he had used, in order that, if necesf^arf, 
hiB Melhj might be tested by collation. If it was so deposited^ 
it seems to have subsequently wandered from that locality, for 
no manuscript corresponding with Archbishop Parker'i d©- 
Bcription of his copy is there to be found* 

Parker's Edition was reprinted at Frankfort, in folio, ia

A-D. 1603, in what is termed '* Camden *s Collection." In A.D.^849 
ihe Dedicatory Epistle Camden brieBy states that Asserts Life 
of Alfred had been already published by Archbishop Parker ; 
hat aUhongh be then for the first time inserted in the text 
ftlie celebrated passage concerning the foundation of the Uni- 
T«r?itj of Oxford,* he neither notices the fact of such insertion, 
oor gires the slightest intimation that he had on this occasion 
made use of any additional mftnuecript authority for the emen- 
dtttion of the text^ 

Another edition of Asser was published by Wise, in the 
jmr 1 722j in octavo, at the Oxford press. Wise compared the 
elitlons of Parker and of Camden, and procured collations of 
^ncli manuscripts as could be obtained* Of these the princi- 
pal was that now destroyed, but formerly in tlie Cotton i an 
Collect ion J Otbo, A^ xii^., apparently the very ancient copy 
rt^erred to by Parker ; from a facsimile of it, which Wisr 
fortunately caused to be engraved, it seems to have been at 
1ea$t as old as the early part of the eleventh century. Lastly^ 
in Mr* Pe trie's " Monumenta Historica Britannica " (fob Lend, 
1849* p* 46*7), we have the latest and best edition of this 
interesting piece of Biography, Mr. Petrie followed the 
edition of Wise, as representing the destroyed Cotton ian 
inannscript, and he collated it witli the only existing copies 
which could be discovered, both of which appear to be Iran-

In a catalogue of materials for the history of this country, it 
would be unpardonable to omit a name so illustrious in our 
Annals as that of Alfred the Great. Although he composed 
no historical work himself, yet, for the instruction of his sub- 
jects, he is said to have translated Beda's Ecclesiastical His- 
tory, and the compendious History of the World by Faulus 
Orosius, from Latin into Anglo-Saxon. In these translations 
the original is sometimes rendered word for word, sometimes 
meaning for meaning ; but Alfred did not always confine him- 
Folf to the letter of the author. He at times used the greatest 
freedom, exercised his own judgment, and added his own re- 
marks or illustrations, not unfrequently expanding a senti- 
ment, or illustrating a fact of the Latin text, into a discourse, 
and thus in effect became the original author of the most in- 
structive Essays. It is not, however, intended to write an 
eulogy on this celebrated monarch. It will be sufficient for the 
present purpose merely to mention the principal works he trans- 
lated or composed,* or which have been attributed to him : — 

* I shall not here enter into the vexed question as to whether or not 
King Alfired was the first compiler of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, as it 
is my intention to offer a few words on the snhject onder the head of 
the Saxon Chronicle.

Frmt€<i by Gale in Quitjdecim Scriptores (pp. 141-175) from 
i MS. in Trinity College, Cambridge, R. 7* 28., apparently of 
the be^inoing of tbo 13th or end of the 12th century* It ia 
wrtttan tbroughont in one neat hand. 

Thie work J to wbicli, an the manuscript, tbo above title baa 
brm prefixed in a modern hand, js an anonymous compilation 
beguining with Julias Caesar's invasion of BritaiTi, and ending, 
apparently mutilated, in the year 914. Besides Cutbbert's 
^a -tie describing the death of Beda^ the visions of Charles le 
Grus and of Eollo, it cousistB of excerpts from the Saxon 
Cbronicle, from Beda, from a source used by the author of the 
Chronicon Cai3onjense, from the Lives of St. Keot aud of St. 
Eucheriusj Bishop of Orleans, from the life of St, Edmund, 
King of East Anglia, by Abbo, and, more especially, from 
Acer's Life of Alfred* 

Tbc work was probably compiled towards the latter end of 
\hv 12th century i but wbeneesoevcr it may have originated 
la ite present form, the extract from Abbo, who wrote at least 
fonrseore yeara after Asser's death, at once puts an end to 
nil pretence for assigning it to Asser.

A-D. 954, of them down to tho year 1066 j the whole of which, with 
a further Contmuation down to the year 1286, taken from 
these two m an o scripts, has been recently edited hy the Eev. 
John Williams Ah Ithel for the Government SerJeSj entitled 
" Chronicles and MomoriaU of Great Britain and Ireland-" 

In the Harloian Manuscript, these Annals are inserted, 
wiUiout title or introduction, in the body of a Matiuacript of 
Nennina, Tho earlier portion appears to have been taken 
from an Irish Chronicle^ which was also used by TigernacUj 
and by the compiler of the " Annals of Ulster," with which it 
cluaely agrees till near the end of the fifth century. During 
its first century it contains scarcely anything relatiog to 
Britain I and its earliest direct concurrence with Engliah 
History is in mentioning the mission of Augustine, when thg 
Angles are first spoken of. Its notices throughout, though 
brieC are valuable. Those Annals were probably written at 
SU David's, as the Bishop of that See, as w^ell as itg monastery, 
are repeatedly noticed. Mr, Williams Ab Ithcl suggests that 
its compiler may have been cither Blegowryd, Archdeacon of 
LlandafiT, or Geraint the Blue Bard, both of them brothers 
of Morgan, King of Glamorgan ; but ho inclines to give tho 
honour to the last named ; we, on the other hand, w^ould Ijo 
more inclined to favour tho former, on the ground that had 
tho author been Geraiut, ho would in all probability have 
employed his native tongue in the composition of the Annab, 
in prefei-ence to the Latin ; whereas, Blegewryd, the mo!*t 
learned in all Cymrn, would naturally have used the Latin, 
as being tlie language of the clerical profesflioUj and equally 
familiar to him with his own tongue. 

Tho Chronology is designated by the repetition of the word 
** annus " for each suecessivo year, whether blank or otherwisci 
and every t-enth year marks x. xx. Ike, 

From a comparison of the dak?s asiiigncd by Tigernach and 
other ancient orders to many of tho events here noticed, it 
may he conjectured that the era on which ita chronology rests 
would concur with the year 444 of the Incarnation, though no 
probable reason can be assigned for this particular period 
having been selected for its comraencemcnt; btit, although 
the starting point cannot be determined with certainty, tho 
internal or relative chronology may generally be depended on ; 
for as every tenth year was to be numbered, the transcriber 
was not likely greatly to err, although he might occasionally

In the title, by an oversight, Wharton has attributed this

and properly assigns it to Eadmer.j: It occurs also in the 
Acta Sanct. ii. 73 (July 4). Mabillon (Act. Sanct. Braed. vii. 
287) has likewise printed this piece from a MS. which belonged 
successively to De Thou and Colbert, apparently the MS. 2475, 
Fonds Lat., a fine folio volume of the thirteenth century.. 
Appended to the Life are fourteen lines, the first of which is — 

*^ Ut rosa de spinis, sic prodiit Odo paganis ;*' 
and the last, — 

*' Multimodce cladis in regione sitis.''

The events mentioned in this Life are few, and most of them A.D. 890- 
are taken from the «' Vita Oswaldi " (MS. Cott. Nero E. 1.), *^i- 
which Eadmer had seen, or else there must have been a Life 
of Odo composed before the end of the tenth century, which 
was used by both writers. 

The chief incidents are the following : — Odo's parentage ; 
his baptism and education ; he is ordained and goes to Rome ; 
is made Bishop of Shirebum by King Athelstan ; he restores 
the King's sword at Brunanburg ; he refuses the archbishop- 
ric of Canterbury until he can procure the habiliments of a 
monk from Floury ; a miracle of the Eucharist ; the church 
of Canterbury protected from rain ; the story of Edwy and the 
two women ; the accession of Edgar ; the consecration of 
Danstan by Odo ; Odo's death ; the succession and death ef 

William of Malmesbury's account of Odo varies from that 
of Eadmer in several particulars. Malmesbury says that Odo 
served under Edward the Elder and afterwards took orders ; 
Eadmer says that he was a presbyter before the death of 
Alfred ; Malmesbury says that he went to Fleury for monastic 
habiliments ; Eadmer, that he sent to Fleury for them. In 
Malmesbury's account Odo appears to Elfsin ; in Eadmer's he • 
appears to the Sacrist. Malmesbury mentions Odo's trans* 
lation of Wilfrid, and the fact that he excommunicated Edwy, 
neither of which events is narrated by Eadmer. Indeed, 
though Malmesbury does relate nearly the same circumstances, 
it may be questioned from these variations whether he did not 
follow some other authority ; his variations certainly are not 
derived from the " Vita Oswaldi," which agree, where they 
have anything in common, with this Life.

Elfleda is said to have been the niece of King Athelstan, to 
have been a nun at Glastonbury, and to have died A.D. 936. 
See Alford, ad. an. § v. It is probable that she is the Alfgiva 
mentioned by OsIk^ in his " Life of Dunstan." See the 
passages in the Acta Sanct. May, tom. iv. 349, § 10, p. 363, 
§ 15 seqq. If this be correct, the date of 936 assigned to her 
death by the English Martyrology (quoted by Alford as above) 
is clearly too early. 

See Mabillon^s Act. Bened. vii. 626, for some extracts 
respecting Mervinna.

Ethel weard'a chronicle was first publkbed by Sir Heniy 
Savilo, in the *' Scriptore.-? post Bedam," London^ 1596, 
reprinted at Frankfort in 1601. Savite, as usual, has omitted 
all reference to tho source whence he obtained the M8* 
which he used, but it was probably the copy afterwards in 
the Gottoni&n collection, Otho. A. x.j as no notice of tmy 
other haa occurred. This MS. was destroyed by fire in 
the year 173L It ia do.'^cribed in Smithes catalogue of ttie 
Cottonian MSS. as "vetustus et puichemuie scriptus,'* and 
although he has not given any further intimation as to il# 
age^ it probably was not written aftor the elevenih centyry. 
Ethel weard's Chronicle has also been edited by the late Mr. 
Petrie in the *' Monumenta Kigtorio^ BritanDicar^ p, 499, from 
Saviie's text. 

The prologue is addt'e^n^sd to his kius^^oznan (consohrins) 
Matilda,* for whoso information, and at whose recj uest^ be 
composed his chronicle. 

Book L extendi from tlu^ Creation to the arrival af 
8* Augustiuep The notices are very i^light up to the abdica* 
tiou of the RomaaSj and are derived from Isidore's ** Origines,'* 
or from some intermediate work of which I.*id ore's chronicJr 
formed the basis, and from Beda's "Historia Ecclesiastica**' 
From the departure of the Romania to the arrival of the Saxons 
he uses Bcda and the Saxon chi'onicle. 

Prologue to Book 2. — ^He professes now to devote his atten- 
tion wholly to his own nation. 

Book 2. — From A.l>. o91 to the accession of Brihtric, Kia^ 
of Wci^sex, A.D. 687, Beda and the Saxon chronicle appear 
to be \dh authorities. 

Prologue to Book 3.— He entreats a favourable acceptance 
by Matilda of his labours. 

* There has been coDKidemblc doubt who this royal lady was. According 
to Ethel wfrd's ovn statement, sbe was desc<?iided from ICing Alfred, tlirougli 
hia gmtid daughter EadgjlJia, the wif« of Otho I., tlmjieror of Gennaoj. 
Mr. Sieve nson has pretty sfltififactiinly &bowu that Matilda wa» tb* 
daughter of Liudiilf, Duke of Suabia, s«n ttf Otlio aad Ead^tha, thai nhv 
WW bam A-D, 949, and became tbe wife of Obkzo, Coumt of MUan. Siu? 
died in LOU.

Book. 4.— From Ethelbald, A.D. 861, to the death of {^dgar, 
975. From 861 to 892 (with some slight exceptions, chiefly 
connected with Dorset or Somerset,) his nif^tter i3 derived 
&om the Saxon chronicle. Thence to 97^, though he still 
uses the chronicle, he has added seyeral facts not there 
noticed, and after a slight mention of £dwy, concludes ynih. 
KHoe yerses on Edgar. 

From the above brief analysis it will be apparent that 
Ethelweard's chronicle is in general a very meagre abridged 
translation of the Saxon chronicle, with a few variations and 
additions.* His copy of the chronicle w^s evidently occa- 
sionaUy faulty, and he seems also sometimes to \xwq nUsun- 
derstood it. His authority and value, however, fts a writer 
ifl an historical point of view, arp not to be despised, and he 
has ^e merit of being the only Latin histqriau in ^ interval 
of two centuries. Malmesbury, however, does not ex^t him 
to the eminence of an historian, and is particularly severe on 
the defects of his style. 

Ethelweard's chronology is very confused. Instead of 
adopting the year of the Incarnation, he usually reckons by 
tlie noinber of years which have elapsed since the event he last 
noticed. He not un&equently omits tp mention the year in 
which the event happened which he is narrating, and his dates 
occasionally differ from those in the Saxon chroi^icle, as it 
appears at present. 

The style of Ethelweard is very faulty ; sometimes it is 
torgid and highly inflated, at other times so obscure aq tq be 

* Mr. Sterenson in his preface to Ethelweard (Church HiBtorians, ii p. iz.) 
justly remarks that his chronicle represents a copy of the Saxon chronicle 
wbicb no longer exists. Assuming that Ethelweard's yersion is a ftdl render- 
ing of his original, and not an abridged selection of extracts, it would appear 
tljM the copy which he used was scantier in its details than those with which 
we are acquainted. Some critical remarks on this Chronicle will be found 
in a pi4>er by Mr. H. T. Riley, in the *^ Gentleman's Magazine " for August 
1857, pp. 120-131.

A manuscript containing this piece was found by Mabillon 
(in Codice Fiscamnensi), but he preferred printing the Life 
written by Wolstan, who relates the same facts, generally in 
the same words, but has made some additions.} Mabillon gives 

* Kobili ex 8ooteDtiiiiD prof^oa ortna, § 8. 

t This MS. was apparently written in France. That it is not the pro- 
duction of an Engli^ scribe is obyious, dx)m its errors in the names of 
places and persons. 

X Mabillon prints a few passages iWnn the Legend by Alfric, in which 
the narrative of that writer differs from that of Wulstan. One of these 
gives the name of a male&ctor, which is not recorded by Wnlstan. Some 
dreams are given by Wulstan which are not to be found in Alfric, one of 
which he had heard from Ethelwold himsel£ In other places also Wulstan 
e3q;iressly states that he derived his information from Ethelwold. The life 
printed by Surius, Yitss Sanct (1 Aug.) 23, may possibly be the work of 
Alfric. C!hanging the style, as was his usage, he says it is a shorter life 
than that given by Mabillon, and that he found it in manuscript

A.D. 984. Alfric's prologue,* which Bubstantially agrees with the latter 
part of Wulaian's, Alfric aclciressei* his work to Kenulf, 
IS [shop of Will ton, and days thnt iwenly years have cUpiSed 
since the death of Ethel wold ; as that prelate died, in August 
98 4j the date of Alfrlc'a compilatioti is fixed to the year 1CX)4» 

Ethel wold wa^ bom in Winchester during the reiga of 
Edward the Elder (therefore before tlie year 925), and wns 
the early friend and schoolfellow of Dunstan. His first 
ecclesiastical dignity was that of Abbot of Abingdon, fi-om 
which he was remored to the see of Winchester, and there 
consecrated by Dunstan, 29th Nor. 963. Here he distinguished 
himself by the vigour with whieh he carried out the expnliion 
of the secular canons, and the introduction of regularSp The 
establishments of Ely, Raniscj, and Peterborough also experi- 
enced his influence in- the same direction. 

Considerable doubt exist^^ as to who the Alfric was, by 
whom this piece of biography was written. It is clear from 
the preface to Alfric's Homilies, and hi* preface to his Gnon- 
mar, as well as in his preface to the Kule of Ethel wokl 
written for the Monks of Eynsham, that Alfric was a pupil 
of Ethel wold ; bat it nowhere appears whether it was at 
Abingdon (where Ethel wo Id opened a monastic school) or 
at Winchester^ after Ethelw^old's promotion to tho bishopric 
of that see, that he became his pupil ; but if he was the 
author, it was probably at the latter place, as in tho prologue 
to this piece lie styles himself Abbot and Scholar of Win- 
ch ester, Mabillou e^tlls the author Abbot of Abingdon, though 
ho has not given his authority ibr that statement. Wharton 
is doubtful to what monastery he belonged, but thinks t]mt 
he certainly did not belong to Abingdon, William of Malmes- 
bury supposes the author to have been Abbot of Mai mes bury, 
but the time will not agree with the 20 years mentioned in 
Alfric's prologue, as he is said to have become Bishop of 
Crediton A.D. 994, ami to have ilied in 999. Mortis (dc

daobus Alfricis) holds Alfric the Grammarian to have been AJ). 984. 
Archbishop of Canterbury, and Alfric, Abbot of Ejnsham, 
afterwards Archbishop of York, to have been the writer 
of the Life of Ethelwold ; and this is probably correct, for 
there is a difficulty in supposing that Alfric, Archbishop of 
Canterbury, wrote this piece, inasmuch as the writer calls 
himself Abbot and Scholar of Winchester ; and does not in- 
sist, as that prelate might have done, upon his own personal 
acquaintance with the subject of his memoir, which was long 
and familiar. The tone also of his letter to the monks of 
Winchester would almost lead to the conclusion that it was 
from them he derived his information ; indeed, he states that 
upon one occasion he^had heard some particulars from Ethel- 
wold himself; but the same statement, in nearly the same 
words, is also to be found in Wulstan's memoir.

cheater ; he appoints Ethelwold abbot of the decayed mo- A.D. 984. 
nasteiy of Abingdon, and bestows on it large possessions. 
The Sling comes to plan the building, and is entertained, 
with the Northumbrian nobles, bj Ethelwold ; at the repast 
the mead suffers no diminution, although they drink to 
excess, and the doors are shut by the King's order, that none 
may escape without taking his share. The story of Elfstan and 
the cauldron.* Ethelwold becomes a great buUder. The ex- 
cesses of the canons of Winchester. They administer poison 
to him while he is entertaming his guests in the hall, but he 
recoyers. The canons disperse throughout England. Ethel- 
wold purchases Ely from King Edgar, and settles monks there 
and at Peterborough, also at Thomey. He expends the treasure 
and ornaments of his church to procure food for the poor during 
a famine. His amiable disposition. He is of a sickly constitu - 
tion. While he is rebuilding the church at Winchester,! a 
monk falls from the roof, but escapes unhurt. The vision of 
a tree laden with cowls. His vision of fishes, which the 
author had heard him describe. The dedication of the new 
church at Winchester, A.D. 980.} Verses on the ceremony.§ 
Ethelwold dies at Braddington, sixty miles from Winchester, 
A J>. 984. Persons who were present relate the circumstances 
of his death to the author. He is buried in the crypt at 
Winchester^ on the south side of the altar. He appears to 
Elfhelm, a blind man of Wallingford, twelve years after his 
death, and orders his body to be taken up, commanding him to 
communicate this to Wulstan the precentor, and his body is 
translated to the choir by Bishop Elphege. He releases a 
thief who had been punished by Elphege. 

* The story of Elfttan and the cauldron is copied almost yerbatfan by 
William of Malmesbmy in his << Qesta Pontificun" ii. 4. 

t Some of the notices about the progress of the work are worthy of 

I One of the bishops present at the consecration was Foca, whom he de- 
scribes as : — ** Nulla laboris agens, pocnla multa bibens.'' 

§ These verses would dispel Mabillon's doubt whether Wulstan was the 
axEliior of this piece. They, for about sixty Unes, are almost verbatfan 
with the commencement of the miracles of Swithun, the undoubted pro- 
duction of Wulstan's Muse. Among the persons present he describes 
King Ethebed :~ 

" Begis Ethelredi &ide pnssente modesti. 
In regni solio qui superest hodie."

The following abstract of its contents will give a fair esti- 
mate of the nature of this biography. 

Prologue addressed to Archbishop Alfric. 

Ch. 1. — Dunstan's parents and birth. Description of Glas- 
tonbury. He is carried thither by his father. His vision of 
the future state of the monastery under himself. He is sent

suffers no decrease. Dunstan sees a dove descend to her when 
sick. His harp sounds while hanging against the wall. 

Ch. 3. — ^Eang Edmund has lately banished him from Court. 
Edmund while hunting is saved, by Dunstan's agency, from 
falling down a precipice, on which he is recalled. He becomes 
^' primus abbas Anglicas nationis ** {i.e, Benedictine). He is 
distressed by visions.

inflaence in the beginning of the reign of Edmund (940-946),t 
haying been called to Court on the death of Ethelstan, where 
he remained some time* Shortly after, ho was made Abbot 
of 61astonbur74 having been expelled from Court, and then 
recalled. He was in great favour with Edred.§ He refused 
the bishopric of Crediton on the death of Ethelgar,|| and was 
present at the coronation of Edwj.lT 

He was obliged to flj a considerable time before the revolt 
of the Northumbrians,** which occurred, as we know, in 957. 
No mention is made of the jear of Dunstan's death, or his age, 
but it is stated that he died " decimo Kalendarum Julii, senex 
" plenus dierum."

xix. p. 346. A collation of the text of the Bollandists with 
the original MS. at Arras shows that they have fallen into 
several mis-readings. Most of them, however, may be cor- 
rected from the Cottonian MS. Mabillon (Act. Ben. sec. v. 
p. 639) censures the style in which this piece is written, and 
declares it to be unworthy of republication, though he admits 
its historical value (Observ. previas, s. 2.) 

Those above mentioned are the only copies known.

exist in the same collection, viz., 5284, 5348, and 5489. There 

is also another in the MS. belonging to the School of Medicine

of Wharton in the Anglia Sacra, ii. 88-120, from a MS. at 


In the Prologue the author states that he has been re- 
quested to compose a Life of Dunstan, although several had 
already been written, but which had in general been either 
inelegantly or carelessly performed ; and, more especially be- 
cause that which had been more commendably executed had 
perished in the late conflagration of the church.* 

The basis of this Life is apparently the same as Bridferth's, 
with some passages from Adelard (see No. 1198); but the 
author appears to have added much from some other source, 
and occasionally to have amplified Bridferth's narrative. The 
principal additions seem to be ; the account of the death of 
Elfgiva. Dunstan's rescue of Edwy's soul from the devil. The 
dove alighting on Odo's tomb. Edgar's violation of the nun, and 
his subsequent penance. Dunstan's prophecy at the coronation 
of Ethelred, and much of the latter part. 

Malmesbury, in his Life of Dunstan, attacks Osbern with 
great asperity, as though he (Osbem) had added most of 
these incidents without authority ; but, as not only Osbem 
but Eadmer also has, in general, the passages reprobated by 
Malmesbury, it is possible that both obtained at least the 
greater portion of their facts from some life with which 
Malmesbury was not acquainted. 

This piece was composed during the archiepiscopate of 
Lanfranc (Mab. Act. SS. ssec. v. 679, § 17.)

The old church destroyed, and the Translation of the relics of 
Saints, § 16. A man confined in chains for killing a deer, 
and the destruction of pirates, § 20. 

At the conclusion of the piece, § 24, the author excuses 
himself for not relating certain miracles which he has omitted 
because they have appeared to him to be somewhat incredible. 
Eadmer, however, in his biography of Dunstan, seems to 
have thought differently, for he has inserted at least six not in 

Osbern was probably a native of Canterbury, and was 
brought up firom early youth in that cathedral, in which he 
became cantor and subprior. William of Malmesbury says 
that in knowledge of music he was second to none in his 
time. He was contemporary with Lanfranc, at whose com- 
mand he wrote the Life of Elphege. He is also said to have 
written a Life of Odo, which is not now to be found, that 
printed by Wharton in the second volume of the Anglia Sacra 
appearing rather to belong to Eadmer. Other Lives have been 
ascribed to him, but without sufficient authority. 

Osbem's style is highly praised by William of Malmesbury.

ascribing it to Osbert. Wharton also printed such parts as 
were told with any degree of variation, or were omitted by 
Osbem ; he found it in a MS. at Corpus Christi College, 
Cambridge, among Eadmer's works, and assigned it to him.* 
This position appears to have been well founded, for in the 
miracles, the writer describes himself as having been present 
at the translation of Dunstan by . Archbishop Lanfranc. In - 
the ** Acta Sanctorum " (May 19) the most remarkable vari- 
ations from Osbeme are inserted in the notes. 

Eadmer's description of the monastic system as it prevailed 
at Canterbury before Lanfranc's time is of great value.

This piece has never been printed. It was written at the 
request of the monks of Glastonbury,* for whom the author 
had previously composed the Life of St. Patrick, the Miracles 
of Benignus, and the Martyrdom of St. Indract. It is men- 
tioned by Bale, Pits, and Tanner, but they did not know 
where it was to be found. The first Book ends at f. 33 b., 
and the second is written in Thomas Heame's hand. The 
copy from which Heame made his transcript has not been 
traced by the compiler of the present work. 

♦ He also says that he writes to correct the mistakes of the new, but 
deceased writer (** novo scriptori ") of St Dunstan's life : — " Plerumqne 
*' enim ant opinione decipitor aut favore inflectitor." He then instances 
some points, of which the third mns thus : " Terdo qnod Glastoniam regali 
**■ fisco addictam et Dunstanom ibi fiiisse primom abbatem dicendo, non 
*' mediocriter in historic veritatem delinquit. Quod, quantum a yero exulet,

he remained five or six years. Returning home, he was a.D. 992. 
created Bishop of Worcester,* from which church ho expelled 
the secular canons, and introduced monks, and in furtherance 
of the same object he founded the monastery of Ramsey.t 
He also held the archbishopric of York, to which he suc- 
ceeded in 9724 He died 29 Feb. 992, and was buried in the 
church which he had erected at Worcester. § 

The biography of Oswald is important, as he was intimately 
connected with the great ecclesiastical reform of his day, the 
expulsion of the seculars and the introduction pf the regulars. 
Malmesbury commends his zeal for the advancement of litera- 
ture, and adds that it was owing to his solicitations that 
Abbo of Fleury took up his residence in England. || The 
Bollandists and Mabillon have only Capgrave's Legend, but in 
MabiUon are long extracts from the Ramsey Chronicle relating 
to Oswald. Eadmer apparently had this life before him and 
abridged it.

verbofie and inflated. Much of his narrative is related by A,D. 1002. 
several parties, introduced with set speeches. There are various 
notices of transactions between England and Normandy, but 
they are apparently of suspicious authority. There is a re- 
markable deficiency of precision in regard to dates, and the 
few notices relating purely to English affairs must be received 
with caution. 

A few circumstances connected with the life of this author 
enable us to form an approximation to the period in which he 
composed this work. 

Dudo had attained the dignity of Dean of S. Quintin ; con- 
sequently it must have been after A.D. 1015, as in that year 
the deanery was occupied by Vivian, Dudo being one of 
the canons.^ When this history was published, Adalbero, 
Bishop of Laon, was still alive, and we know that ho survived 
until A.D. lOSO.f It had been long in preparation, as it was 
commenced two years before the death of the first Duke 
Richard, consequently in the year 1000, and was continued 
at the request of his successors. It would thus appear that it 
occupied the attention of its author for nearly a quarter of a 
century, and was probably completed between the years 1015 
and 1026.

eminence, who had been resident at Flcuri, had founded a 
monastery to St. Benedict, some of whose monks formed the 
embassy before mentioned. Abbot Oylbold selected Abbo, as 
one well qualitied for the task, to instnict them in the know- 
ledge of tilings divine and human. He proceeded to llamsey^ 
which was just then consecrated under the auspicea of Oswald,

The style of this piece is very declamatory, and the narra- AJ). 1012. 
tive prolix, but it is important as shewing the progress of the 
policy introduced by Dunstan, to whom Elphege owed his 
elevation ; it contains also several curious and valuable 
particulars. Those passages also which treat of the Danish 
invasion have an especial interest. It appears to have been 
written about the year 1080. 

Osbem was educated at, and afterwards became a monk of, 
Canterbury, and successively became precentor and superior 
of his house. He was well skilled in music, and wrote the 
Lives of several saints ; among them those of Dunstan, Br^-

above, which is believed to be unique. 

This piece extends from the year 449 to 1035. The author 
seems frequently desirous of examining and comparing autho- 
rities, and yet the result is only error and absurdity, as 
he confounds persons and places, and sets chronology at 
defiance. He often speaks so much with the appearance of 
truth, that it is vexatious and mortifying to find, on ex- 
amination, that he is in reality full of error and confusion ; 
for instance, he makes Charlemagne to have subdued England ; 
0& to have put Ethelbert, King of Wessex, to death; Brich- 
tric^ King of Wessex, is said to have been tributary to Ofia ; 
Alfred is reported to have attempted to violate Freth- 
switha ; Rollo comes to Ethelingai to assist Alfred ; Guthrum 
after his baptism returns home till recalled by Athelstan, 
during the reign of his father Edward the Elder ; Edgiva, wife 
of Charles the Simple of France, comes to England, and her 
brother bestows her in marriage on Sihtric, King of Northum- 
bria, by whom she has Guthred and Olaf ; Edward the Martyr 
reproves Gunnild, and on leaving her she stabs him ; Ethelred 
has engaged a body of Danish soldiers in his service, whom he 
is compelled to sacrifice to the clamour of the people ; Sweyn 
and Olaf come to avenge the slaughter ; Ethelred, alarmed 
at their approach, goes to Normandy to buy assistance from 
Duke Richard, and leaves his children with him ; London is 
besieged, and Olaf makes peace with Ethelred ; the battle of 
Assandun is fought before the death of Ethelred. 

The author seems to have used Beda, William of Malmesbury, 
Henry of Huntingdon, Florence of Worcester, and William of 
Jumi^es ; but the Lives of Saints form the larger portion of 
his work.* Among them he evidently uses the Life of St. Dun- 

* Many of these have been confessedly omitted by Gale, and he has

Although this ChroDicle is attributed to John Walling ford, 
yet thorc is considerable douht as to its authorship* In tlio 
beginning of tho MS, (Julius D* vii*) is this rubric, "Hie cut

remainder being obliterated). In another part is the figuru 
of a monk, and over it "Fraier Johannes de Wftlliiigford> 
" quandoquG Infirmarius;" which has induced Gale to consider 
John Wallingford to be the author, and to be the same person ns 
Abbot John Wallingford, who died in the year 1214, But 
this appears to be an erroneous con cl us ion, for at the end uf 
the volume is a list of all the monks of St, AJban's who died 
from the time that John Wallingford entered the society in 
the year 1231 ; and under the year 1258 occurs as follows, 
** xix- Kah Septembris npud Wy mundham obiit Johannes dc 
'* WaUingford, sacordos Domini et scriptor hujus libri," from 
wbich it would seem that the Chronicle was transcribed by a 
John Wallingford, and not that he was its author or compiler. 
There is, however, no doubt that there was another John 
Wallingford. Abbot of St. Alban's, who died 17 July 1214, 
Matthew Pari^, in bis account of this Abbotts life, enters into 
minute particulars concerning him j but makes no allusion 
whatever aa to his having been a chronicler, although ho do-

merly belonged to Sir Bobert Cotton, and which was lent by 
liim to Duchesne, who apparently did not return it. Ko traces 
of it can now be discovered, either in England or in France. 
A second copy, however, has recently been discovered in the 
Imperial Library in Paris, Fonds Lat. 6285 (formerly Colbert 
5887, and Beg. 10. 504-9) in small quarto^ upon vellum, of the 
fifteenth century,f and formerly belonging to Cecil, Lord 
Burghley. It omits the Prologue and Argument (pp. 168 and 
164 of Duchesne), and varies considerably from that text, 

* ** TrenBcriptom et excerptum a vetustissimo exemplari manuscripto per 
Thorn. Talbot, 1566.'' This is in all probability a transcript of Sir Bobert 
Cotton's MS., as it agrees with Dtichesne's text 

t It consists of seren leayes and half a page, 45 lines in a page, 10 words 
in a line. The writing is remarkably fine and minute.

from a MS. which at that time belonged to Bigot. The Bol- 
landists reprinted this text with collations ** ex MS. Bergensi " 
(24 July) 613. 

A monk named Balgerus determined to make a voyage 
from Flanders to England, where he was well known to the 
king and to many great men, and purposed landing at Dover, 
but the vessel was driven past her destination by stress of 
weather, and at last entered the port of Sevordh under full 
sail.* Next day being Easter Sunday, Balgerus was anxious 
to be present at Divine service, but no church was. near at 
hand in which he could perform his devotions. He, how- 
ever, perceived one nearly three leagues off, which he ascer- 
tained was dedicated to St Andrew,! and contained the relics 
of St Lewina. He was kindly received there by the priest, 
who interpreted to him the miracles of St Lewina, which 
were written on sheets of parchment and fixed on the wall. 
After a time, the priest having left him in charge of the 
church, whilst he went elsewhere, Balgerus stole the relics, 
and conveyed them to Borg. On opening the package, they 
found a scroll of parchment, stating that the virgin Lewina 
had suffered martyrdom in the time of King Eilbert and 
Archbishop Theodore, and that many years afterwards her 
remains had been translated by Bishop Edelm4 Little more 
than this was known of her history, as her acts had either not 
been written or had perished. 

This Balgerus appears to have been a notable relic-hunter. 
He had before conveyed those of St Oswald, king and martyr, 
and St. Idaberga, to Borg (Act Sanct Ord. Ben. vi. 114). 
As Drogo dedicates this history of St. Lewina's translation 
to his abbot, Rumold, we are enabled to ascertain that it must 
have been written before A.D. 1068, in which year that abbot

it for a particular purpose, he leayes it in the care of a stranger. There 
seems little doubt that the church was that of St Andrew in Lewes.

This piece is a good specimen of monastic history, and is A.D. 1066. 
written with apparent candour ; it gives an account of the 
foundation and fortunes of Ramsey Abbey prior to the Norman 
Invasion, its endowments by various individuals, and a 
sketch of the biography of its abbots. It contains also slight 
notices of public events, with many curious particulars of the 
manner of acquiring property, and of the arts and customs of 
the age in which it was written. It has also a few notices of 
Archbishops Odo, Dunstan, and Oswald, and of its founder, 
the £arldorman Ailwin. The general history affords little or 
nothing new ; it seems derived from William of Malmesbury, 
many of whose expressions are adopted. The charters entered 
in this work are, in general, confessedly translated from the 

The History is followed by an account of the persecution of 
Abbot Walter by Greoffirey de Mandeville, commencing, " Per- 
** secutio domini Galteri Abbatis. Postquam dominus Gual- 
'^ terus, quondam Abbas Ramesiensis,'* and ending, ** Abbas 
** iste multis laboribus et expensis magnaque sui corporis 
'* anxietate, Graveliam, Bradenach, Cranleiam, Elington ad 
<< dominium ecclesisa Ramesiensis revocavit. Walton vero de 
*-* novo adquisivit." 

This is the end of the fourth part of the Rawlinson MS. 333. 
The earlier portion of the fourth part was not entered in the 
Exchequer MS., but a space is left as if it was intended for 
it. The author lived during the time of Abbot Walter (as 
appears by the preface which G^e thought fit to omit) conse- 
quently before AD. 1160. 

There are other registers of this abbey extant. One 
among the Cottonian MS., Vespasian E. ii., a small quarto 
volume, on vellum, entitled ''Registrum Cartarum Abbatiae de 
*' Ramesey transcriptum per Robertum Dodford, dericum, 
** usque ad 30 Hen. HI." Otho B. xiv. f. 253 contains some 
valuable charters, as also does Vespasian A. xviii. Other 
charters will likewise be found in Galba E. x. In the Har- 
leian Collection are two registers ; one (No. 5071), the con- 
tents of which are given in Uie Appendix to Sprott's Chronicle, 
edited by Heame ; the other (No. 445) formerly belonged to 
Peter Le Neve. Tanner, in his ** Notitia^" mentions a register 
belonging to Henry Cromwell, Esq., in 1650. It is probably a 
copy of that now in the Public Record Office, if indeed it be

It is addressed to Alianor, Queen of Henry the Third, and is

on the occasion of the restoration of the church of Westminster, 
Of the church itself a very elaborate description is given.

in the early part, at least, there are additions from other A.D. 1066, 
sources, and the author has mixed up the two works together 
no as to make one continuous narrative. He has also availed 
himself of the works of other chroniclers, ai)d has apparently 
obtained information from persons nearly contemporary with 
the events he describes. It ends with the Translation by 
Gundulf (Aelred, 1. c. 40) ; the last leaf but one has been torn 
out. Each page is headed with a coloured illustration of the 
events described in it There is likewise a description of 
the illustration in verses written in red. The illuminations 
are of great merit, in outline, coloured. The MS. belonged I0 
Nowel in 1563, and was given to Cope by Lambard. It was 
formerly in the collection of Bishop Moore, and presented 
by George I. to the University of Cambridge. Of the author 
nothing is known, but Mr. Luard's suggestion, founded on a 
hint he has given of himself (lin. 2020-2), that he was 
connected with Westminster, is probably correct.

This piece has not been printed. In the volume in which it 
appears are several other Lives of Saints, this being the last 
in the volume. It is the foundation of Aelred's work, as may 
be seen by the ** Capitala " of Osbert's tracts which are printed 
in the preface to Mr. Luard's ^* Lives of Edward the Con- 
fessor,** p. XXV. 

Osbert de Clare was originally a monk of Stoke Clare, in 
Suffolk, and subsequently became Prior of Westminster. He 
was sent by the King to Rome to obtain permission to esta- 
blish a festival in conmiemoration of King Edward the Con- 
fessor, whose body had been exhumed in Westminster Abbey, 
and on which occurrence he composed this piece. Osbert 
wrote other Lives of Saints. His Letters also are preserved 
in Gale's collection at Trinity College, Cambridge, and were 
published by Mr. Anstruther, Brussels, 1846. See Art. 1245.

SuriuS) De probatis Sanctorum Historiis ;t in the Opera Divi 
Aelredi Rhievallensis, edit. Ric. Gibbon. 4to. Douay, 1616- 
1631, and reprinted in the Magna Bibl. Veterum Patrum, 
Cologne, 1618 ; in Migne's Patrologia ; and in the Acta Sanct. 
Jan. i. 2924 but which last omits the preface and dedication, 
the last chapter of the first book and the whole of the second 
book (consisting of miracles) being abridged. 

This piece, which is in two books, is almost entirely 
derived from Osbert, to whose life of the Confessor Aelred 
appears to refer in his preface addressed to Laurence, Abbot 
of Westminster, who took a prominent part in the translation, 
at whose request Aelred's work was written. He was present 
in the Abbey of Westminster at the translation of the relics, 
and on that occasion composed this Life.

This poem, containing 536 lines, was written by the com- 
mand of King Henry VL, to whom it is dedicated, and was 
probably composed, as Mr. Luard suggests, between the years 
1440 and 1460. It embraces the same period of history as 

* It is singular that the editors of this work could only find the single 
MS. copy, one, namely, belonging to Usher. See Twysden's Pre&ce. 

f The history of the translation, fit)m a MS. apparently imperfect at 
the beginning, is given by Surius, and reprinted by Bollandus, p. 303. 

X In this edition the miracles are given in a contracted form. 

§ This MS. formerly belonged to Robert Hare, and the initial letters are 
alternately in red and blue. The first letter of the poem contains what is 
intended for a portrait of Edward the Confessor. The MS. contains ten 
leaves, twenty-seven lines being written in each page. 

II The MS. contains seven folio leaves, thirty-seven lines being in each. 
It is bound up in a volume of prophecies, of which many are by John of 
Brydlyngton. It omits the Colophon, and there are some verbal differ^ 
ences of no great moment between it and the Selden MS.

This metrical Life of Edward the Confessor, in six books, 
has been attributed, though without sufficient authority, to 
Aelred of Rievaulx, but it is hardly anything more than a 
versification of his prose Life of that monarch. Mr. Luard, in 
his preface to the " Lives of Edward the Confessor," pub- 
lish^ among the Chronicles and Memorials of Great 
Britain and Lreland, has pointed out the chief differences 
between this and the prose Life. (1.) The prologues 
differ considerably. (2.) The single combat of Cnut and 
Edmund L'onside, which is omitted in the prose Life, though 
given in the genealogy, is mentioned in the metrical Life. 
(3.) In the account of the dedication of Westminster the 
account of St. Augustine's mission is much fuller in the 
metrical Life. (4.) The " Literas Regis" and the " Privilegium " 
Domini Nicholai Papas are omitted in the metrical Life. (5.) 
The Preface to Book vi. is not in the prose Life. (6.) The 
metrical Life mentions Harold's defeat and death, which the 
prose Life does not

These letters relate to the attempt to procure the canoniza- 
tion of Edward the Confessor in the year 1 1 40. That to Henry 
Bishop of Winchester states where he derived his information 
relating to Edward's miracles. This is followed by letters of 
credence for Osbert, Prior of Westminster, to Pope Innocent ;

and for Henry, Bishop of Winchester, from the Chapter of St. A.D. 1066. 
PaaFs, from King Stephen, recommending the canonization ; 
andlnnocent's answer to the Abbot of Westminster commending 
Osbert's condnct ; but requiring more information, and a more 
general request- for the canonization. Concerning his canoni- 
zation, see a bull of Alexander IV. dated at Anagnia, 7, Id. 
Feb. 1161, given bj Wilkins, Concil. 1. 434, Mansi, xxi. 871 
and 1047, Baronius ad an. No. 1, and in the Acta Sanctorum, 
p. 303. King Edward was canonized by Alexander III., at 
the instance of King Henry 11. The translation of his body, 
which ought immediately to have followed his canonization, 
was delayed until the return of King Henry to England from 
Normandy. The ceremony took place 13th Oct. 1163; and 
his festival was thenceforth held on that day, instead of the 
day of his death, which occurred on the 5th January.*

Incip, — " Seynt Edward the good kyngc ought devoutly to

" blood royall. Afore his days there was in Englaude oft- 
** tymes werre and blode shecd, for fokes were as they yet

ExpL — " that we may come to rcigne with hym in joy and

*' For charite pray for me ; Deo gratias." 

It ends "with the narrative of Gilbert Crispin and the 
Bishop of Rochester finding the King's body incorrupt (Aelred 
Rievd. col. 408), and seems to be nothing more than a 
translation from Osbert or Aelred of Rievaulx. It is ap- 
parently the composition of Lydgate.

author denominates the Pagan period. 

The second Book, in 71 chapters, begins with the conversion 
of the Saxons, and ends with the death of Ethelred, in 871, 
and the union of the kingdom under Alfred. 

The third, in 36 chapters, commences with the genealogy 
and coronation of Alfred, the first monarch of England, and 
ends with the death of Hardecnut. 

The fourth, in 52 chapters, commences with the birth of 
Edward the Confessor, here called Edward the Third, and 
ends with the accession of Harold II. 

Of the compiler little is known. In the prologue ho calls 
himself Richard, a monk of Westminster, and at the close of 
the fourth book, or, as he terms it, the end of the first part, 
Richard of Cirencestria, a monk of the Church of St. Peter, 

The MS. volume (which is the only copy known) formerly 
belonged to Archbishop Parker, and has his signature, Mat- 
thsens Cantuar. 1574, written on the top of the first page. 

Stukely, in his account of Richard of Cirencester, states 
that his name first appears on the chamberlain's list of the 
monks of Westminster in the year 1855. He was witness to 
a deed in 1387, and his name is found in the chamberlain's 
lists 1397 and 1399. In 1391 he obtained his abbot's licence 
to go to Rome. In 1400 he was in the atbey infirmary, and 
died in that or the next year. Other works are ascribed to 
him. The treatise " De Situ Britanniae," which was published 
by C. J. Bertram, at Copenhagen, in 1757, is also given to 
him ; but the authenticity of the work is doubted.

There is some difficulty in placing the collective annals 
which constitute " The Saxon Chronicle " under any one year 
in particular, as the manuscripts in which they are contained 
all end at difiereut times, and consequently there would be 
a difficulty in inserting them in this Catalogue under any of 
the years in which these copies respectively terminate. It 
iias therefore been deemed advisable to place a notice of the

edition which has recently appeared, among the '' Chronicles A.D. 1066. 
^^ and Memorials of Great Britain and Ireland/' under the 
direction of the Master of the Bolls. 

To King Alfred, Archbishop Flegmund, and Archbishop 
Donstan, respectively, has been assigned the honour of being 
the originator of the Chronicle ; but no contemporary evi- 
denoe can be adduced in favour of any one of them. That the 
first named, however, may have ordered that materials should 
be collected for such a purpose is probable enough, for we 
know that he did everything in his power to encourage 
learning and foster historical knowledge among his subjects. 
When we find him translating Beda's Ecclesiastical History, 
Orosius, and Boethius, into his mother tongue for the informa- 
tion of his subjects, it certainly is no violation of probability 
to believe that he would order the events of his kingdom to 
be gathered together, and published in the vernacular idiom 
of his people, for their benefit and instruction. The fact of 
the extraordinary general accordance of all copies now remain- 
ing, from the earliest entry in the Chronicle to the close of tho 
ninth century, does to a certain extent encourage the belief 
that it was at Alfred's command that the compilation was 
commenced. Against this supposition, however, it may bo 
urged that so important an undertaking would scarcely have 
escaped the notice of Asser, his contemporaneous biographer ; 
but in answer to this, it must be borne in mind that the 
same biographer has omitted all notice of Alfred's other 
literary productions. 

In fiirther corroboration of the assumption that King 
Alfred was the originator,* we do not say the actual framer, of 
the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle ; this fact may be adduced, that 
from the date of his birth in the year 849 to that of 891 
the entries in the different manuscripts, as far as his actions 
are concerned, are, with one exception (Domit. A. VIIL), 
unequivocally alike. 

All these circumstances combined certainly encourage the 
belief that it was by King Alfred's order that the various 
annals or memoranda of public events, at that time kept in the 

* Corroboratiye also of this view, at least to some extent, is the assertioii 
of GeofiVey Qaimar, that King Alfred caused an English book tti be 
written of deeds and laws, of battles in the land, and of kings who made

1823 an edition was published by Dr. Ingram, president of A.D. 1066. 
Trinity College, Oxford. . He collated all the known MSS., 
and gave an English version, together with a preface, notes, 
indices of persons and places, and brief grammar of the Anglo- 
Saxon language. 

In the " Monumenta Historica Britannica," edited by the 
late Mr. Petrie, and published in the year 1848, that portion 
of the Chronicle extending from Caesar's invasion of Britain 
to the year 1066 was printed with an English translation and 
notes. The text was re-constructed, and a manuscript in 
Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, (the oldest known,) was 
adopted as its basis ; this was collated with MS. Cott. Tiber. 
A. vi., MS. Cott. Tiber. B. i., MS. Cott. Tiber. B. iv., MS. 
Bodl. Laud. 636, MS. Cott. Domit. A. viii., and the frag- 
ments of MS. Cott. Otho. B. xi. All additions to the text of 
Corpus manuscript are placed in brackets in the text ; where 
this could not be conveniently done the variations form a 
second text. Every variation, however minute^ occurring in 
the several manuscripts has been preserved. 

A new edition has lately appeared among the '^ Chronicles 
" and Memorials of Great Britain and Ireland," published by 
the Government, under the direction of the Master of the 
Rolls, and edited by Mr. Benjamin Thorpe. In this edition 
the t^xts of six manuscripts are printed in parallel columns. 
A second volume contains a translation of the text. The 
indexes are translated from those in Gibson's edition, but 
made to correspond with the pages of the Anglo-Saxon text 
and translation. There is also a glossary of two pages and a 
half of a few Anglo-Saxon terms, necessarily retained in the 
translation, for which there is no exact equivalent in English.*

to 54 (An. 925-955) the hand is again changed, and at p. 55 AJ>. loee. 
there is another hand. From p. 56 to p. 59 (An. 973 to the 
end of An. 1001) there is a different and smaller hand. The 
remainder^ to An. 1066 (except Cnut's gift, An. 1031), seems 
to be in the same hand. The account of Lanfranc (An. 1070) 
is in a somewhat different hand, and in the latter part it re- 
sembles that of the ancient additions preceding An. 891. 

Besides the varietj of hands already noticed, there are many 
insertions preceding the year 891, in a hand apparently of the 
twelfth century. They in general occupy the place of passages 
which have been erased,* and which they were probably in- 
tended to correct ; but there are also a few corrections or 
various readings inserted between the lines, without effiKung 

yiH patricius 

the ancient reading (mip — Her paladius).t 

Wheloc, who collated this copy, has inadvertently ascribed 
these additions to Josselin, who, though he did indeed insert in 
the margins many collations from other manuscripts, yet the 
hand in which they are written in the text is certainly not his. 
Wheloc further says, that Josselin assigns them to the ** Codex 
'^ Petroburgensis," whereas Josselin merely says occasionally, 
" sic et in Cod. Petroburg."J 

The original hand in the text to An. 891 has various uniform 
peculiarities of orthography, such as Cuam for Com, Walas 
for Wealasy hiera for hiorOy Of slog for O/sloh, MUrcna for 
Myrcn<i^ Cuen for CweUy &c. Josselin has attended to these 
variations in his collations in Tiberius, B. iv. ; but Wheloc has 
not noticed them.§ 

* The original and its intended correction or substitation may be seen 
at An. 603 and S04. 

t At An. S45 a passage has been added and afterwards erased, apparently 
because it iras fonnd to be In the text lower down (An. 851). It is, 
howerer, still in a great degree legible ; being in a hand somewhat larger 
than the text, and not so upright 

X For instance, nnder An. 381, 409, 423, 430-604, and in two or three 
other places, Josselin writes ** sic etiam in Petrob.," yet he leares many 
others without any attempt to appropriate them. Most of them, howerer, 
in substance at least, are either in MS. Cott or in MS. Laud 636, which, 
if not Josselin's Cod. Petrob., is a nearly similar cqpy. 

S Wheloc has not denoted the additions at An. 86, 560, 596, 606, 616, 
and he has erroneously marked as additious parts of An. 465, 588, 761, 794, 
and 879, which are in the original hand. He has also omitted to point out

The volume in whieh this eojjy of the Saxon Chronicle occurs 

was a small folio before it was damaged by tire in 1731. It is 

now reduced to a email quarto. The whole volume, which is 

in a hand apparently of the eleventh century, was supposed to 

have been destroyed by Arc, but a considerable portion of 

Beda's Ecclesiastical History, whieli was included in the

This was originally a small qnarto, but is now much shrunk

to those of Tiberius B. iv. To A.D. 918 this copy, with little 
variation, is taken from a manuscript similar to the Cottonian 
MS. Otho B. xi. ; but it would seem that the compiler of it 
having found the Annals of Mercia, during the government 
of Ethelfleda, in a separate form, instead of attempting to 
incorporate them chronologically with the other narrative, has 
inserted them continuously, so that after carrying on the 
annals to An. 918, he returns to 896 with the Mercian notices, 
which are continued till the two narratives run into one. An. 
919. Thenceforward to An. 934 it has little resemblance to 
MS. Otho B. xi., but afterwards, from that year to 975, it has 
much in common with that copy. Its connexion with a copy 
resembling Otho, rather than the Corpus MS., before it was 
interpolated, is ascertained by a comparison of the years 54-7, 
560, 565y* and 616,* with Wheloc's edition, as collated with 
the Corpus MS. 

* Both years are on erasares in the Cktrpus MS.

This copy extends from the Incarnation to the year 1079, 
and is written in the same hand to A.D. 1016, then in the same 
kind of hand, bat smaller, and afterwards nearly the same to 
the end. The continuation after 1016 bears internal evidence 
of being in some places the work of a contemporary. It is 
much mutilated from An. 261 to An. 693 ; but part of 
the hiatus, from 409 to 633, has been filled up by Josselin from 
other copies. It is also mutilated at the end. It originally 
had no initials, but some have been added in red to An. 794. 
Besides using the common basis of the Corpus Christi MS. to 
An. 975, it seems to have insertions from two other MSS., 
one like Laud 636, and the other like Tiberius A. vi. ; in 
addition to which, it has many events relating to Mercia and 
Northumbria from an unknown source, which would almost 
seem to imply the existence of a distinct Chronicle. The 
history of Ethelfleda is interwoven chronologically, but some- 
times unskilfully. 

In general Item implies the beginning of a new year f but 
in this copy it seems occasionally to indicate the insertion of 
an extract from a fresh manuscript. 

This MS. is called " Chronicon Wigorniae " by Josselin. 

The portion extending from A.D. 1043 to the end has been 
printed by Lye as an Appendix to his Saxon Dictionary, from 
a faulty transcript by Lambard, now in the library of Christ 
Churcl)^ Canterbury.

bj Dachesne. 

In the latter portion of this manuscript there is much to 
lead to the inference that it is the production of more than 
one contemporaneous writer. In one place an expression 
points to Edward the Confessor as being on the throne when 
the entry was written (An. 1041). In another the author 
gives a minute and graphic description of William the 
Conqueror^ from personal observation (An. 1087). A pious 
ejaculation for the welfare of Emulf, Bishop of Rochester 
upon his accession to that dignity in 1114,* shows that 
the passage in which it occurs must probably have been 
written at the time, certainly before his death in 1124. 
A sentence which may be seen at the end of the year 1127t 
proves that the writer when he penned it was then ignorant of 
the issue of a transaction, which, however, he presently enters 
as concluded in 1 128.| This portion of the Chronicle bears in- 
disputable marks of a contemporary hand on every page ; the 
hopes and fears, affections and antipathies, of the writer being 
all distinctly recorded. It was not reduced to its present form, 
however, until after the death of King Stephen, whose reign is 
mentioned as having extended to 19 years (A.D. 1 137). Again, 
Martin Abbot of Peterborough is spoken of as dead when the 
narrative assumed its present form, an event which we know 
did not occur until An. 1165. The writers, whoever they 
were^ seem to have been well informed upon the transactions 
of the period, and at the same time cautious in introducing 
statements, of the veracity of which they had not reasonable 
evidence. In one place. An. 1 106, they say, speaking of some 
strange appearances in the sky, '' but we do not write more 
^* fully about it, because we saw it not ourselves." Upon 
another occasion, they express themselves with a degree of 
independence of thought upon the delicate subject of the 
venality of the Court of Rome, which shews them to have 

* ** God iBlmihtig wimie lefre mid him."

periods to which they respectively relate. 

The earliest collection of these Laws was made by William 
Lambarde, who published the result of his labours in the year 
1568, under the title of " APXAIONOMIA, sive de Priscis 
^* Anglorum Legibus Libri, sermone Anglico, vetustate anti- 
** quissimo, aliquot abhinc seculis conscripti." This volume 
only contains the Laws of Ina, and of Alfred, the agreement 
between Alfred and Guthrum, the Laws of Edward, the agree- 
ment between Edward and Guthrum, the Laws of Athel- 
Stan, Edmund, Edgar, Ethelred, Cnut, and Edward the 

In the year 1644 Abraham Wheloc produced an amended 
edition of these Laws, with the Laws of the Conqueror and 
Henry L ; and David Wilkins published, in 1721, his celebrated 
collection under the title of ''Leges Anglo-SaxonicsB Eccle- 
'' siasticsB et Civiles." The last edition of these Laws published 
in England* was in the year 1840. It was commenced under 
the direction of the late Mr. Henry Petrie, as a portion 6f the 
'< Monumenta Historica Britannica," and was to have formed 
one of the volumes of that national collection. Mr. Petrie 
was assisted in this portion of the work by the late Mr. 
Richard Price, a highly competent and accomplished scholar. 
On the death of Mr. Price the completion of the work was en- 
trusted to Mr. Thorpe by the late Record Commissioners, and 
at his suggestion the portion that had been printed under 
Mr. Price's revision was cancelled, in order that <* an uni- 
'' formity of phraseology might be secured in fhe translation." 

The Laws of Kings Aethelbirht, Hlothasre and Eadric, 
THhtraed, Alfred and Ine, Alfred and Guthrum's Peace, the

A new collection was formed by the late Mr. Aneurin Owen, a.D. 10C6« 
and published bj the Record Commission in the year 184*1 . 
It was originallj intended to constitute a portion of Mr* Petrie's 
" Monumenta Historica Britannica ;" but the Record Commis- 
sioners determined to publish it in a separate form. In the 
first instance it was entrusted to the late Humphries Parry ; 
but his decease occurred before any progress had been made 
by him in the collection of the materials. It is pleasing to 
observe the terms in which Mr. Aneurin Owen speaks of the 
late Mr. Petrie when offering his acknowledgments to those 
who assisted him.

They exhibit important bearings upon the existing condition A.D. 1066. 
of society in Ireland. Some relate to offences against person 
and property ; and regulate, in the most minute manner, the 
fines to be paid by the offenders as the compensation to be re- 
ceived by the injured parties or their representatives. Others 
prescribe the prices to be paid for work done or articles 
purchased. A very interesting class of laws lays down the 
privileges attaching to persons in the different ranks of society. 
Others have reference to the distribution and transfer of land. 
No portion of the wofk has been published ; but large collec-

are ready for printing.

An important series of Charters, WUlSyand other documents,

from various original sources and ancient manuscripts. 

A large and valuable collection of Charters relating to the 
Anglo-Saxon period was made by the late Mr. Petrie, and is 
now deposited in the Public Record Office. It contains a 
great number of important documents which are not in Mr. 
Kemble's volumes. Mr. Petrie's collection was lent to Mr. 
Thorpe in the spring of 1868, and that gentlemen has 
announced his intention of publishing the collection.

This piece, which is little els<? than an historical romance, 
ift probably unique, and has never been printed.* It waa 
written apparently for the ptirpose of proving that Harold 
waw not interred at Waltham, and was, perhaps, conipo?!f^d 
by one of the secular canons who had been expelled from 
that establishment J with the intDntiou of robbing it of the 
honour of holding the remains of its founder. Tho narrativa 
originally consisted of twenty cha[)ters, but two others were 
aubseqiientlj added. 

The principal events narrated are as follows i — In cap. 5 
the author states that Harold was mortally wounded, and to 
all appearance dead, but when the field of battle was ex- 
amiucd by some women who were searching for their friends^ 
it was discovered, and life still lingered in his body. With 
the aid of two I^nglish franklins, he wasJ removed to Win- 
chester and placed in a secret place, where ho was at- 
tended for two years, and finally cured by the surgical f^kill 

♦ A portion will be found in Michers ** Chroniqnes Anglo-Normandes "

in an article in Cochrane's Foreign Quarterly for June 1835.

of a Saracenic woman. On his recovery, lamenting the A.D. 1066. 
fate of his country, he determined to try and rid her of 
the yoke under which she was groaning, hy expelling the 
Normans. He left England and sought the assistance of 
Saxony and Denmark, but without success. Cap. 6. Disgusted 
and foiled in his attempt, he determines to abandon ambition 
and revenge, and by way of penance to go barefooted to Pales- 
tine. He spent two years there, and underwent the greatest 
privations and austerities, and at the same time collected many 
relics, evidently for his foundation at Waltham. Cap. 7. When 
at Rome he carried off the bones ** Crisanti et Darias ;" he is 
pursued, however and brought back in bonds. The author states 
in cap. 9 that the oak is yet standing near Rouen under which 
Harold swore to William when he was in his power. Cap. 10. 
He says that the oath was extorted from him under fear 
of perpetual imprisonment or death, from which there was no 
escape, and that on his return to England he related what he 
had done^ and all persons were enraged with him ; yet notwith- 
standing, he was, at Edward's death, unanimously chosen king. 
That when the King of Norway invaded York, and Harold 
went against him, he was attacked with a disease in his legs,* 
and that he was cured by Elsinus, Abbot of Ramsey, through 
the mediation of the spirit of Edward the Confessor. In 
emp, 13 the writer relates how Harold during his peregrination 
pined for his native land, which he determined to visit. He 
lands at Dover, and from the top of the high cliffs surveys 
the kiugdom once his own. Assuming the name of Christian, 
he passes through Kent and goes into Wales, concealing his 
scarred features with a cowl. In Shropshire, at a place called 
Ceswrthin, he constructs himself a cell, where he remains 
ten years, but leaves the spot on account of the annoyances 
he received from the Welsh, who frequently beat him and 
stole his garments. Cap. 15. He has now become decrepit 
with age, and prays to have a place assigned for his death, 
and wanders in search of it. He goes to Chester, where by a 
supernatural intimation he finds a dwelling prepared for 
him in the chapel of St. James, within the cemetery of St. 
John the Baptist, on the banks of the river Dee, a little 
beyond the walls of the city of Chester. An anchorite had 
recently died there, and Harold succeeded to his cell. They 
suspected from his wounds that he was Harold, but he gene-

The Appendix contains a list of the materials for our 
history which have hitherto been printed. Although it 
may seem sufficiently intelligible of itself, some explana- 
tion may be necessary. 

Since the appearance, in 1 480, of the earliest historical 
work by Caxton down to the present time, the ancient 
English historians, chronicles, and works of less preten- 
sions have at different times been published, either 
separately or in collections. To the historical student 
the knowledge whether a manuscript has been printed is 
essential, and it is part of my plan to assist him in this 
respect, by directing him to the volume in which it 
occurs; for there can be but little doubt that gene- 
rally a reader would prefer consulting a printed book 
to a difficult manuscript ; thus the list may prevent 
a valuable manuscript being used, except in instances 
of doubt as to the correctness of the print. There is 
always some chance of deterioration every time ancient 
writings are used. The list given in the Appendix 
was compiled for my own use ; I found it indispensable, 
and I print it here in the full belief that it will be 
equally useful to others. Much of it refers to the period 
from the Norman Conquest to the accession of Henry 
VIII., and therefore, strictly, should properly have 
been inserted at the end of the work ; but for obvious 
reasons it has been placed where it now stands. 

Although the list shows where each article has been 
printed, there is a double reference given to those which 
occur in such collections as the " Scriptores post Bedam," 
" Anglia Sacra,'* " Acta Sanctorum.** This arrangement 
appeared to me more convenient for general consultation 
than that generally adopted of giving cross referencea 
Several of the works which are mentioned belong to a 
subsequent period ; but in giving a list of the publica- 

Digitized by 



tions of the various Clubs and Societies, as well as those 
of tljG Government, I have thought it advisable not to 
omit auy, although they relate to matters subsequent to 
the reign of Hemy VII. Hollingshcd, Fox, and one or 
two other well-known hiatorical works, have been placed 
in thb category* 

As many of the articles which are printed among the 
works of the dificrent Societies or Cluba, and in collec- 
tions, are of little importanc*^ compared with others, and 
may be termed Hubsidiaryj I have not mentioned them 
specially in the alphabetical list. If the reader does not 
find the article which he seeks in its proper plaee, he bt 
requested to look under the collections published by the 
several Cluba and Societies, as well as by private in- 

The Jouraab of the various Archmological Societies are 
not included in this Appendix^ as their contents are gene- 
rally in the nature of dissertations, ratlier than the pub- 
li eat ion of original historical pieces. Some articles in the 
Arohseologia, &c., form an exception, because they oon* 
tain original documents. 

It may be objected that some of the notices refer to 
books which can scarcely be said to belong to the class to 
which this Apjiendix is devoted ; but I have deemed it 
advisable not to exclude them, in the beltef that they will 
be found use fid to the reader. 

It may jtlsr^ lie said that this Appendix does not exhaust 
each subject, and that much more could be added to some 
of the articles. The only anfiwer I can make to such an 
objection is, that I do not profeFia to put this forward sis 
a perfect work, but only perfect so far as my personal 
knowledge extends. Those who luive made any one 
subject tbeir speciality will be able, no doubt, to supply 
many of mj^ deficiencies.
